Last week, I shared one of our favorite recipes included in my cookbook for Grilled Pork Chops with Lime and Cilantro and today I have another Family Favorites recipe that I couldn’t wait to try again. When making dinner, I like to keep the same flavors going with my sides and vegetables so I created these Honey Lime Glazed Carrots to go with them.
I love using fresh vegetables, they just taste so much better than canned and I like how you can control the texture of them. For instance, have you ever eaten a frozen or canned carrot? They’re like mush in your mouth!
When you steam fresh carrots, I like to leave them a bit on the crispier side and my kids like them better that way as well. In any event, these carrots made the perfect accompaniment to our pork chops and the hint of lime and sweetness of the honey were perfect! ~Enjoy!
