For this Glazed Green Beans and Carrots I personally always use chicken broth to make it but if you are a vegan or vegetarian or only have vegetable broth in the house you can easily substitute it! The taste will still impress you!
I have also, on a few occasions over the years, made this recipe with only carrots or just beans even though I prefer to serve this colorful dish with both. However, if you are only using beans make sure to reduce the cooking time at the start by 2 minutes so you don’t overcook them!

Glazed Green Beans and Carrots
- 2 cups green beans, fresh, cut approximately
- 2 cups carrots, peeled and sliced or a bag of baby carrots - approximately
- 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
- 3 tblsp butter, melted
- 3 tablespoons honey or brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt, more or less to taste

In a large skillet or pot, bring enough salted water to cover your carrots and beans to a boil. I usually add about 1 teaspoon of salt to the water.
Add carrots and cook for 2 minutes.
Add beans and cook for another 2 minutes.
Drain in a colander in your sink and pat dry with a paper towel as best you can.
In a large skillet add broth and butter.
Bring to a boil and then decrease your temperature to simmer, medium to medium low. Add beans and carrots and continue simmering for 3 minutes uncovered to reduce the liquid. Stir regularly.
Add honey or brown sugar, salt and pepper and stir for a minute or so to coat. Serve immediately and enjoy!
