Glazed Carrots and Parsnips

5 Min
10 Min

Any dish that's delicious and nutritious works for us and these Glazed Carrots and Parsnips certainly fit the bill!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 pound carrots, peeled (about 4)
  • 1/2 pound parsnips, peeled (about 6)
  • 2 tablespoons dried currants (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

What to Do

  1. Cut carrots and parsnips into 1/4-inch by 2-inch strips.

  2. Cover carrots and parsnips with water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, and boil 10 to 12 minutes or until tender, adding currants, if desired, during the last 2 minutes; drain.

  3. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat; stir in mustard, honey, and salt until blended. Stir in carrot mixture, and cook until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.


Carrots are available year-round and are a great source of vitamin A. Look for firm, smooth carrots with a deep orange color-avoid those with cracks. Generally, 1 pound of carrots equals about 3 cups chopped or sliced, or about 2-1/2 cups shredded.
