These Asian-style carrots might sound exotic, but with their sweet, savory and salty flavor profile, they would be amazing served alongside American staples like meatloaf and roast chicken.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced on the diagonal into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup scallion greens, chopped

Directions

Add the sesame seeds to a small dry skillet over medium-high heat and toast until browned, about 2 minutes, stirring often to prevent burning. Transfer to a small dish and set aside. 

Add the carrots, 1/2 cup water, hoisin, butter and some salt and pepper to a large skillet over medium-high heat and simmer for 3 minutes. Lower the heat to medium, cover and cook until the carrots are tender when pierced easily with a fork, about 20 minutes. Raise the heat to medium-high, bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until the liquid is reduced to a glaze, up to 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, fold in the scallions and sesame seeds and toss until all is coated in the glaze. Serve warm.
