Easy Ginger & Honey Boiled Carrots

Thanksgiving is next Thursday 11/22/18. (I honestly cannot believe I am even typing that. This year flew by!)

For those of you hosting your friends and families Thanksgiving day, I wanted to post a quick and simple side dish that can be added to any style meal you prepare. Also, this is a simple side dish to bring with you if you are looking to help your host a bit with their feast preparations.

This recipe is extremely easy to make and it kicks up you basic boiled carrots a notch. It’s big on flavor without overpowering the actual carrot flavor. You can’t go wrong with this side. I promise.



  • Sliced Carrots (2 pounds)
  • 3 tbsp butter (unsalted)
  • 2 ½ tbsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • Pinch of ground black pepper



  1. Peel the skin from the carrots
  2. Wash the carrots
  3. Dice the carrots
  4. Place the diced carrots in a large-sized pot.
  5. On med-high heat, cook the carrots until they come to a boil.
  6. Continue to cook at a boil until the carrots are soft.
  7. Once the carrots are soft enough to cut with a fork, remove from the heat.
  8. Drain the water from the pot.
  9. Once the water has been removed, transfer the carrots to a large-sized bowl.
  10. Add in the butter, ginger, honey, salt and black pepper.
  11. Mix gently until evenly combined and the butter is fully melted (The carrot slices should have a slice glazed look to them)
  12. Enjoy!


  • Feel free to reduce or increase the amounts of honey and ginger based on your own taste preferences.
  • You can reheat these in the microwave or you can throw them back in a stove top pot and reheat.
