Of course, you can make these with traditional orange carrots for a gorgeous side dish.  I love the unique colors of the rainbow carrots, especially for a holiday celebration.  But, don’t limit these beauties to special occasions…. this dish is truly so simple to prepare you can make it on a busy weeknight.  Hope your family loves it as much as mine!

Honey Rainbow Carrots


  • 2 pounds rainbow carrots, peeled
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Cook carrots with about 1/2 cup of water over medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes in a large skillet.  Drain water.  Add butter, honey and salt back to carrots and toss over low heat until carrots are coated with sauce.  Display carrots on platter and garnish with salt and pepper, as desired.
