  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground mustard
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 ½ pounds carrots, baby carrots or larger carrots cut into 1 inch slices
  • 1 naval orange
  • parsley, chopped for garnish


  • Melt the butter in a large sauté pan.
  • Add all the spices, cumin through pepper, to the sauté pan. Stir and cook for one minute in the butter.
  • Add the orange juice and stir to combine with the butter mixture. Bring to a simmer.
  • Add the carrots to the pan and bring the liquid back to a simmer. Stir the carrots with the butter mixture. Partially cover the pan (about ¾ covered) with a lid and simmer the carrots for about 15 minutes.
  • While the carrots are cooking, cut the peel and white pith off the orange. Cut the segments from the membanes and reserve the segments in a separate bowl.
  • Remove the lid from the carrots and continue to cook until liquid has condensed to more of a glaze (about 15-20 more minutes).
  • Stir the carrots to incorporate all the glaze. Serve warm sprinkled with the orange segments and parsley.


Gr8 Notes:
  • The carrots can be made ahead of time and warmed on the stove or microwave before serving.
  • They also can be served at room temperature.
  • Leftover carrots can be kept in the refrigerator for up to a week.
