Sweet Miso Glazed Baby Carrots

Sweet Miso Glazed Baby Carrots

Recipe by Joey O'Hare of @joeyscooking.

This ‘recipe’ couldn’t be simpler. I’m not sure it could be tastier either! I’ve always had a slight love/hate relationship with cooked carrots, but if you keep them al dente here the fresh, sweet carrot flavour comes through, along with all the pizzazz of the miso and sesame glaze, and the sharpness of the lime… It’s a fabulous side dish, small plate, or very simple starter, or part of a larger meal – any left-over roast chicken or duck would be an especially tasty addition!

Sweet Miso Glazed Baby Carrots


  • roughly 20 baby carrots
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp Pearly Queen Enfield Spring Blossom Honey - £7.50
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp miso paste
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 6 spring onions, finely chopped

How to make

  1. Bring a generous amount of salted water to the boil, meanwhile, peel and prep the carrots.
  2. Plunge the carrots into the boiling water, and cook for only a few minutes, leaving some bite in the centre.
  3. Drain and allow the steam to billow off.
  4. The glaze is a simple mixture of the sesame oil, honey, ginger and miso.
  5. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan, and slice the spring onions for garnishing.
  6. Everything up to this point can done well in advance if needs be.
  7. When you are ready to eat, simply heat a non-stick frying pan, adding a teaspoon of sesame oil or coconut oil. Sauté the carrots just for a moment, before adding the glaze. Keep the carrots rolling around the pan to caramelise and coat. The glaze will darken slightly, and reduce in consistency, but don’t let it burn. About 2-3 minutes should do the trick.
  8. Tip onto warmed plates, sprinkling with toasted sesame seeds, spring onions, and zesting with lime! Yes.
