Glazed Ranch Carrots are tender baby carrots covered in a savory & sweet glaze. They will become the most popular vegetable in your home!
Carrots are one of the best vegetables to eat, in my opinion. They are a miracle veggie that helps keep healthy eyesight due to the beta-carotene that this and other orange-colored fruits and vegetables have. My recipe for Glazed Ranch Carrots is so fantastic that it will have you and your family seeing double! 😉
I love any recipe that can perfectly balance a sweet & savory profile and these carrots deliver! I first served this at a family holiday party, and I was surprised to see that all of the kids couldn’t get enough of them. The sweetness of the brown sugar mixed with the savory ranch mix is the ultimate palate pleasing combination.
This great side dish has turned from a special occasion dish to an any occasion side dish. They are so simple to make that you’ll have them on the dinner table in 30 minutes. If you have a kid who is a little finicky about eating their vegetables give this recipe a try and watch how you change their perspective.

IS THIS RECIPE GLUTEN FREE?
Yes! Each component of the recipe is gluten free.
HOW LONG TO THE CARROTS KEEP?
