Yum-o! Glazed Carrots

Serves 4

This recipe was served in Chicago Public Schools (CPS) as part of a collaboration between Yum-o!, CPS and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Originally created to be served in schools, we’ve adapted the recipe here for you to try at home.


  • 3 cups carrots (about 6-8 carrots), peeled and sliced crosswise on the bias
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) or vegetable oil
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add the EVOO, one turn of the pan. Add the carrots and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until slightly tender, stirring occasionally. Add the orange juice and brown sugar and season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, then turn the heat to low and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the carrots are tender and lightly glazed.
