Tangy balsamic carrots

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: approximately 20 minutes

1 bag (10 ounces) shredded carrots (approximately 4 cups)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley

Place carrots in a pan, add approximately 1 inch of water, cover pan with lid, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook for 8–10 minutes, or until carrots are tender when pierced with a fork. Drain well, leaving carrots in the pan, cover, and set aside. Heat oil in a small pan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté 3–4 minutes, or until tender and translucent. Stir in brown sugar and vinegar. Cook mixture 1–2 minutes, or until sugar dissolves and mixture thickens slightly. Pour over drained carrots and toss to coat. Sprinkle with parsley and toss to mix.
