Apricot and Pomegranate Glazed Carrots

It’s here!!! Turkey day is only two days away!! What are you bringing to the table this year?? This year I am excited to bring this show stopping apricot and pomegranate glazed carrot side dish! A sweet and tangy glaze covers tender carrots topped with crunchy pistachios and pomegranate seeds. Yuuuuummmm! My mouth is watering as I write this! 

Another handy feature of this recipe is that it is super fast to make and holds up really well to traveling or storage in the fridge before being reheated…that glaze isn’t going anywhere! 

 

Enjoy this super delicious, fast and beautiful veggie side!

 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! :)
