These carrots are so easy to make, and have a sweet and salty thing going on with a touch of umami. You'll want to make these all the time!

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Place the carrots into a large skillet.
  2. Cut the tablespoons of butter in half, and place three on top of the carrots, and three in the bottom of the skillet around the carrots.
  3. Pour coconut aminos and water over the carrots.
  4. Season with a pinch of salt and black pepper.
  5. Turn burner on to medium heat, and cover with a lid.
  6. Cook for 20 minutes, or until tender.
  7. Remove the lid and spoon any remaining liquid over the carrots, as well as turn the carrots to coat in the sauce.


If there is a lot of liquid left after the carrots are tender, turn the heat up to high to reduce the liquid to a glaze, but there shouldn't be too much liquid left after the carrots cook.
