Honey Glazed Carrots

This take on Vichy style carrots is sure to prove a hit if served as part of any Christmas or Winter themed dinner.


  • 450 g carrots (thinly sliced on the diagonal)
  • 25 g butter
  • 1 tblsp honey
  • 300 ml vegetable stock or water
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place the carrots in a small pan with the butter, honey and enough stock or water to just cover the carrots.
  2. Bring to the boil, then cook over a moderate to high heat for about 12 minutes until the carrots are tender and all of the liquid has evaporated, shaking the pan occasionally to prevent sticking.
  3. Meanwhile, toast the sesame seeds in a heavy-based frying pan.
  4. Tip on to a plate and leave to cool.
  5. When the carrots are cooked, tip in the sesame seeds and toss until evenly coated. Season to taste.
