Honey with a bit of butter makes a rich, sweet glaze; you won't believe this colorful recipe keeps you on track with your plan! First, we use a large skillet to roast the carrots until softened. We sliced the carrots for this recipe, but you could also cut them into matchstick sizes. Scrub and peel the carrots before slicing them. Before cutting the sugar-snap peas, snap off the stem end and the string for each sugar-snap pea pod. This vegetable pairs well with a variety of dishes, including grilled or baked chicken or fish.
