I AM Not Vegan. Do I have to use agave?
We know that not everyone here is vegan, but they are dairy free. These vegan glazed carrots are great with agave, but you could also swap for honey if that is what you have on hand.
Maple syrup would also work, but we like the stickiness from the agave and/or honey use.
If you are using maple syrup, because it is less sticky, you should cook for an extra 2-3 minutes so the flavors can develop a bit longer.
I’M ALLERGIC TO COCONUT. HOW CAN I MAKE THIS A TOP 8 ALLERGY FRIENDLY RECIPE?
If you need to swap out the coconut oil because of an allergy for this vegan glazed carrots recipe, all you need to do is replace it, in the same quantity, with a similar cooking oil.
If you are looking for a coconut oil substitute for these glazed baby carrots, I suggest grapeseed or sunflower oil. However, any oil, or even dairy free butter will work.
It will change the taste slightly, so we do recommended replacing something that is mild, even slightly sweet, that won’t be very strong.
How do I make these Vegan Glazed Carrots for a crowd?
This recipe calls for 1 pound of carrots to be used. That serves roughly 4 people. You can double or triple the amount in equal portions if you need to make for more people.
