Glazed herby baby carrots and courgettes
Skill level: Easy peasy
Costs: Cheap as chips
We love glazed herby carrots and this version with baby carrots and courgettes is so tasty, and a perfect easy side dish for a roast dinner. The secret to getting the perfect glaze on your carrots and courgettes is to cook them with a bit of sugar and butter. Personally we like the sweetness of the baby carrots with the addition of the glaze, and courgettes for some colour and even more vitamins and fibre goodness! Serve these to kids who don't like vegetables and watch them clear the plate!
