Instant Pot Glazed Carrots

It is that time of the year, garden carrots are popping up in all their orange and yellow glory. We had a bunch in our CSA basket and I also had a bunch I had purchased on sale. I personally really like the sweet, glazed cooked carrots BUT I didn’t want to heat up the oven and my house. So after looking around the internet, I came up with this method to glaze the carrots in the Instant Pot using a secret ingredient.


Baking soda. Yep, I’m not a scientist but there is some reaction with the baking soda that will allow the carrots to glaze. I figured it was worth a try and was quite happy with the results. I left my carrots whole (I like the look) but you could chop them if you wanted to.


Instant Pot Glazed Carrots, serves 4-6 as a side dish


  • 2-3 lb. carrots, cleaned and trimmed
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon honey


Place your IP on high saute and add butter. Let it melt and add in your carrots saute for just a minute or two. Add in the baking soda and honey. Put on and lock lid in place with IP on manual for 4 minutes. Once it has come to pressure and time is up, quick release the steam using an oven mitt. Remove from IP and serve.


I found no need to add more liquid – the butter and natural juices from the carrots was enough for this short time. These reheat just fine in the microwave. Enjoy!
