Recipe type: Vegetables
  • Carrots, peeled and cut into your desired shape. Keep your carrots a similar size so they cook at the same rate.
  • Pinch salt
  • 1-2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1-2 cloves Garlic, minced or grated
  • Salt & Pepper
  1. In a large pot, add about an inch of water and a pinch of salt. Set on your stove top and turn on heat to high. When the water is boiling, add in the prepared carrots and cover with a lid. Turn down the heat to low/medium and steam for about 5 minutes. Drain carrots.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add in olive oil, garlic and carrots. Sauté for another 2 minutes. Add in salt and pepper to taste.
  3. To vary the flavour, you could use a flavoured olive oil, available at many specialty olive oil shops. If you would like to further brighten the taste of this dish, add in a squeeze of lemon juice or a balsamic vinegar.
