Mandarin-Glazed Carrots

Mandarin-Glazed Carrots

Serves 4

Sweet mandarin oranges are a great match for carrots in this flavorful side dish. Consider doubling the recipe for a holiday crowd. It’s terrific at room temperature or quickly reheated on the stovetop, so you can easily make it up to two days ahead of time. Add sliced mint leaves for a festive garnish.

  • 3 clementines or satsumas, peeled and chopped (remove any seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 pound (7 to 8 medium) carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon toasted cumin seeds

In a medium saucepan, heat clementines and butter over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until clementines are soft, about 5 minutes. Add carrots and salt; cover the pan, lower heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until carrots are just tender, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cumin seeds and serve warm or at room temperature.
