Honeyed Carrots for your Honeys


Now, I’m not pretending to be some sort of a genius who invented honeyed carrots. I’m not. I’m just putting them on your radar for your little human. Mine loves these. He will eat an entire carrot cooked this way. So will my deviant husband. They are like insatiable little rabbits, giving those poor carrots a right old munching. But I can’t blame them – these carrots are delicious. Frying vegetables may seem a little weird-o. But at a lowish temperature, it will retain more nutrients than boiling them. Win! So, here we go:


– 1 carrot cut into thin sticks

– 3 teaspoons of butter

– 2 teaspoons honey

 Makes those carrots tops:

– melt the butter in a frypan over a low-medium heat

– whack the carrot sticks in and fling them around in that lovely butter. They will take around 4 or 5 minutes to cook. But titrate the cooking time to however your wee one likes their vegies

– when the carrots are almost cooked, add the honey and give the carrots a chance to have a delightful little baste in those sticky, sweet juices. You want the honey to take on a slight caramelised texture

– get them out of the frypan and onto a plate and into that little persons belly

 Everyone’s happy!
