1/2 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup water

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning

3/4 pound carrots, cut on the bias into coins

1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley leaves

Freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a small skillet, combine the broth, water, butter, brown sugar, cumin, and 1/2 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the carrots, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until just tender, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Uncover the pan and let the liquid cook down until it reduces to a glaze, about 2 to 3 minutes. Toss the carrots to generously coat them with the glaze. Stir in the lemon juice and parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve.
