Glazed carrots on a plate.
Glaze Your Carrots In Orange Juice And Thank Us Later
By Allison Lindsey
Carrots are great because they are so customizable, but if you still haven’t found a go-to carrot recipe, you should try glazing your carrots in orange juice.
Brushing your carrots with an orange juice glaze is an easy way to infuse them with exciting new dimensions of flavor, without dimming
their natural vegetal flavor.
As the carrots cook, the refreshing orange juice glaze undergoes a caramelization process that facilitates an enveloping
crunch to give the carrots a
decadently crispy texture.
It doesn’t matter whether
you use natural, squeezed, or concentrated orange juice. The best orange juice selection is the one that works best for your one-of-a-kind recipe.
The extra sweetness in natural orange juice will bolster the caramelization process for
an even crispier finish and concentrated juice is ideal
if you like a little tartness.
You can enjoy this orange juice glazed carrot recipe by itself, in a stir-fried dish, or use it as a side dish for a roast chicken or baked lamb chops.
