Agave Glazed Carrots

  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into julienne strips or sliced into rounds (or you could use a pound of baby carrots)
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • Enough water to cover carrots in the pan
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons agave syrup (can use white or brown sugar also)
  • Chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  1. Boil enough salted water in a pan to cover the carrots once they’re placed in.
  2. Place carrots in boiling water and cook until fork tender. The time will vary depending on how thick your carrot pieces are.
  3. Drain the water and return the pan to the stove, over low heat. Let the heat remove the water. Add the butter. Toss carrots until coated with melted butter.
  4. Add the agave syrup and stir the carrots in the butter and syrup until the two form a glaze.
  5. Taste and add salt and pepper as wanted.
  6. Transfer to serving platter and sprinkle with chopped parsley (optional)
