Sweet & Spicy Carrot Coins

The perfect meal and/or side dish!

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start. We all have different feelings towards the first day of the week, but it’s all what you make of it! You create your own destiny, so a positive attitude will go a long way! This is something that I definitely learned the hard way so I like to share that with people as a general “tip” if you will. It may be cliche but it’s so true!

After a weekend in the city eating all the YUMMY food & drinks to celebrate graduation weekend & of course Mother’s Day too, I was in major need of some veggies! I whipped out my bag of rainbow carrots from Trader Joe’s and found a wonderful recipe on the back for these Sweet and Spicy carrots. I did make a few changes because of ingredients I was missing & to make it vegan so I thought I would share it with you all!

Sautéing the carrots until they are tender!


What you will need…

  • 4 large Rainbow Carrots (of course, adjust to quantity desired)
  • 2-3 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
Final Product!


  1. In a skillet melt the butter over medium heat.
  2. Stir in the brown sugar, cayenne and cinnamon and heat until the mixture turns liquid.
  3. Cut the carrots into coins (to desired thickness) and add to the mixture.
  4. Sprinkle with salt & pepper and cook until they’re tender and glazed (about 15-20 minutes)

This recipe was modified from the back of the Trader Joe’s package! I hope you all enjoy this recipe and don’t forget to leave a comment below if you try it out & tag me on social media @eatnaturalwithnat! ENJOY

    I’ve made these a dozen times!! I add a splash of orange juice and let them simmer in all that goodness!! Kids love them…but I take the cayenne down a bit for them.
