Disclosure:  I received an Anolon Advanced 5 Quart Saute Pan from Anolon.  All comments in this post are 100% my own.
Have you heard about the  Holiday Sides “Make it Yours” Anolon Giveaway on Facebook?  I’m one of the 8 bloggers that are participating!  I received the Anolon Advanced 5 Quart Saute with Helper Handle (below) to test and feature a side dish recipe that I have “made my own.”  I spotted the yummy Roasted Carrots from 1-2 Simple Cooking and decided that it would be the perfect recipe to saute in my Anolon Advanced 5 Quart Saute Pan!
Fresh carrots are inexpensive.  I don’t know why I don’t cook them more often.  Now that I have tried this recipe, I’ll definitely put them in my side dish rotation!  I normally use olive oil when I sauté most food, but I thought I’d splurge a bit with the butter.
Here are the changes I made to make it my own:

  • The recipe below serves two instead of one. 
  • I sautéed them in butter, instead of roasting them in the oven with olive oil.
  • It only took 8 minutes to sauté in the pan vs roasting in the oven at 400°F for 20-25 minutes.




 Here’s the recipe!

    It sounds delicious as is, but I love to add basil to most everything i cook, so that would be my little change.

  2. 39

    Eloise C says

    I might add a tablespoon of minced garlic and maybe some sauteed onions. Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway!


  3. 54

    Marti Tabora says

    If i made this recipe, I would add extra salt and I would add some onions to try and take away some of the sweetness of the carrots. I know most people would want to enhance the sweet taste, but I am strange and I have a problem with sweet vegetables. Thank you.

    I would make the sauteed carrot my own by adding a bit of maple syrup to make a slightly sweet glaze. They look great as is though! Thank you.

    Linda Szymoniak says

    My favorite way to cook fresh carrots is to make them honey glazed. I think a touch of honey would balance the seasonings in this recipe well.

    Kerry Clark says

    I’d probably leave it the same – I tried to make some the other day on my own for the first time and they came our horrible. Haha. I’ll probably try this recipe next. :)

  7. 91

    Stephanie says

    I would use olive oil, and sprinkle with nutmeg and parm. I’m a fan of savory over sweet, so this would be perfect for me!

  8. 95

    Jessie Stanley says

    I think I could add garlic or a little brown sugar or cayenne.
    Although I prob wouldn’t add anything….my 3 year old loves cooked/steamed carrots and the simpler the better—she doesn’t need the extra sugar or spicy. :)

  9. 98

    Chantel Techick says

    I would add a little, garlic, and tarragon. Then drizzle with a little honey at the end. Mmm should cook fresh carrots more often.

    I make carrots just like this only I add a little water so they steam and then I take off the lid and crank up the heat until the water evaporates and your left with buttery, creamy, herbed carrots. They are delicious. Sometimes I add in peas. I rinse the frozen peas and then add in just a minute to warm up – do not overcook or they will get gray and unappealing.

    Ashley C says

    My husband is a huge fan of thyme so I’d maybe add a few sprigs of fresh rosemary from our garden or possibly go a sweet route and add some brown sugar?


  12. 116

    Tina says

    I would also try this recipe with squash instead of the carrots. But would be blessed to win this pan to teach my grandkids how to cook.

  13. 117


    Usually I like little sweetening to my cooked carrots, but I love the idea of adding Thyme. I don’t think I could change anything other than doubling the recipe for a family of 4 (and cooking them in my Anolon Advanced 5 Quart Saute Pan (if I win it)).
