I love an easy side dish and I love using a slow cooker, so this recipe was a easy one to put together. I find using a slow cooker produces very soft and tender vegetables, so I am a huge fan.
These carrots are sweet, soft and prepared in less than 5 minutes!
Slow Cooker Agave Glazed Ginger Carrots
- 1 1/2 cups baby carrots
- 2 tbsp agave nectar
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 2 tbsp olive oil
In a small crockpot, throw in the baby carrots, agave, ginger, thyme and olive oil.
Mix together, ensuring that the carrots are fully coated.
Cook in the crockpot for 4 hours on high (3 hours if you want a firmer carrot) or 7-8 hours on low.
Once tender, remove from the crockpot and serve.
Easy as that!
