Tomorrow is Easter, and if you're making dinner you probably already have your main course planned.  But if you'd like a last-minute idea for an easy side dish, I'm recommending these Easy-Easy Slow Cooker Honey Carrots from A Veggie Venture.  My friend Alanna says these carrots are so good that it's even okay to use those "baby" carrots she normally advises against. According to Alanna, both kids and adults like these carrots, and after reading the ingredients I'm sure she's right about that.

Ingredients for this recipe: 
Carrots, butter, honey, Dijon mustard, tobasco, salt and pepper, fresh cilantro (for serving)

  1. I'm not usually a fan of cooked carrots, but with honey and hot sauce in the mix, I'm willing to give them another try.

  2. I made these to go along with Easter dinner. I used Chalula in place of Tobasco in a pinch, but they turned out great. I will make them with Tobasco next time just to compare. I do not like really over-the-top sweet carrots, and would highly recommend this recipe, for a very mild yet tasty alternative!

  3. I tried these yesterday. I was delighted that the carrots turned out perfectly cooked, with great texture, neither mushy nor undercooked (my carrots generally turn out one or the other, whether I boil or steam them -- I'm an inept cook). But I din't care for the sweet taste all that much; would it still taste fine if I leave out the honey?

  4. I am guessing it would, but this recipe is from A Veggie Venture and I haven't tried it so for an informed opinion you'd have to click through and ask that blogger. (And I know she is in Europe right now so she might not reply right away.)
