  • 6 carrots peeled and thinly sliced on a diagonal
  • 1 tbsp honey

  • Cover with a cartouche or a lid and bring to the boil,
  • then cook over a moderate to high heat for about 12-15 minutes until the carrots are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, shaking the pan occasionally to prevent sticking.
