    The traditional, old school, recipe calls for just carrots, water and brown sugar or honey, creating a syrupy glaze that makes adults and children alike devour their vegetables. My version elevates the traditional just a bit.

Paprika, cumin and coriander give a little kick, making them not only sweet, but smoky with definition and flavor.

    Salt and lemon accentuate the natural flavors and parsley adds color. Of course, any of these ingredients are easy enough to omit altogether as long as the essentials, honey and carrots, are still there.

    I always like taking a traditional dish and seeing what I can add to or take away from the recipe to make it better. These Honey Glazed Carrots don’t get more traditional than most recipes.
