Carrots have a deep, natural sweetness that pairs beautifully with honey and orange. They get a long bath in a flavorful broth, then finally are topped with vibrant fresh herbs.


Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Total time: 40 minutes


Serves: 4 to 6


2 tablespoons LouAna® Coconut Oil or LouAna® Organic Coconut Oil
1/2 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
10 to 12 small (7- to 8-inch) carrots with tops, peeled and halved lengthwise
1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley


In a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat, add coconut oil, orange juice, honey, salt and apple cider vinegar. Whisk to combine. Add prepared carrots.

Bring just to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and cover. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove lid and cook for an additional 10 minutes until sauce has reduced and coated carrots.

Transfer to a serving plate and sprinkle with fresh parsley.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
