  • 20 baby carrots, cleaned peeled and cut in half, lengthwise
  • 3 sprigs thyme
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon light brown sugar
  • ½ lemon, zested
  • ½ orange, zested
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high.
  • Place carrots and thyme in a mixing bowl and toss together with oil until all carrots are well coated. Season with salt and pepper.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine the remaining ingredients and whisk together until fully incorporated and sugar is mostly dissolved.
  • Once grill is hot, spread carrots onto grill or grill pan, in a single layer, and grill for 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Brush with balsamic butter and flip. Grill for an additional 3 to 4 minutes, brushing carrots with the glaze every 2 minutes.
  • Once carrots have softened brush with butter mixture and season with salt and pepper.
  • Drizzle with any remaining balsamic butter, top with citrus zest and adjust seasonings. Serve.
