Recipe #106: Orange Glazed Carrots

By Rylee Ahnen, University of Minnesota Nutrition Major

Who doesn’t love a delicious carrot? This root vegetable is a fantastic source of Vitamin A, which is used for many different metabolic functions in our bodies. One of the most important functions of Vitamin A is retinal development, which allows us to have strong and effective eyesight. Vitamin A is also important for maintaining healthy vibrant skin.
One of my favorite carrot recipes is for Orange Glazed Carrots. This can be made as a simple side dish or as the staple of a meal for any carrot enthusiast. My grandma brings it to Thanksgiving every year, and it’s always a favorite.
