Easy Ranch Carrots

My little sis has turned into quite the little cook since being married. She was telling me about her husband’s family recipe for Ranch Carrots and how it has quickly become a go-to side dish recipe for her. She kept going on and on about how amazing they were and I knew I needed to sample them for myself.

Last week she finally brought some over for me to try and I couldn’t get over how delicious they were. Then she proceeded to tell me that they were only 4 INGREDIENTS! Can you believe it?! If you are looking for a simple but tasty side dish to your next meal, definitely give these a try! You family will LOVE them!

Easy Ranch Carrots! This side dish is only FOUR INGREDIENTS and so delicious! Definitely a new family favorite!

    These look like a great recipe, that my little one would eat. I’m ALWAYS looking for quick, tasty veggie recipes for my family.
    One question on the instructions- so you steam the carrots on their own…and then melt the butter, mix it with the dry ingredients and just add the carrots? (or did you mix in the sugar and seasonings into the butter before melting it, so the whole mixture cooks together?) I am just wondering when the sugar melts, etc.

  2. Great idea. I never thought to mix the Ranch with b sugar. Great combo. I’ll give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi ya! Making these tonight and I was wondering – did you melt the butter or just soften it?

    Thanks so much! I’m gonna melt it now, no time to wait for it to soften.

    Any suggestions if you don’t have a steamer? Can you boil the carrots? Or perhaps use a slow cooker somehow? Thanks!

    Has anyone used anything in place of the butter? Olive oil? Brummel and Brown? I’m trying to eat more heart healthy.

    I made these for Thanksgiving, and everyone loved them! I just boiled the carrots, and put everything else in a bowl, then once the boiled carrots hit the butter it melts no problem!

    These were really good! I cut 1 & 1/4 pounds of regular carrots into coins and had enough glaze left over for another pound or so. We had no carrots left after dinner, but I saved the glaze to use tomorrow on some more!

    These look so good and i am sure they taste divine. I want to try them. Sad thing is, here in Australia there is no Hidden Valley dry ranch dip mix packets. :-( I guess it’s time i find a good home made dry ranch recipe ( anyone know any ? ) or keep begging family to send some packets in the mail. :-D
