Glazed Carrots

I had plans with a friend this evening, so I needed a super quick side to throw together. This worked out wonderfully. A touch of cinnamon, thyme, or dried cranberries would be an excellent addition also. I did this in the microwave, while I washed off my post gym sweat, but the carrots could be stir fried, boiled, roasted, or steamed depending on your preference.

Glazed Carrots
-1 lb. baby carrots
-1/2 cup pecans, toasted
-1 tbsp. butter
-2 tbsp. brown sugar
In microwave safe dish with lid, melt butter for 30-60 seconds. Stir in brown sugar, then carrots, until mixed well. Cover and microwave 10-15 minutes, until desired tenderness is achieved. Stir in pecans.
