The time has passed for bland and boring veggies…It’s the era of FLAVOUR. Give these carrots a go for your next side or main dish, It will not disappoint!
1 Bag of Carrots
Mint Sauce (Store Bought OR Fresh Mint chopped with Vinegar & Seasoning)
Butter and/or Oil for sautéing
Parmesan Cheese (Or your favourite sharp hard cheese)
Hazel Nuts (Can be substituted for seeds, but you want that crunch!)
Bring a large pot of water to a boil
Peel carrots. Cut them in similar size pieces. You can cut rounds, off shape chunks or slices like seen in my picture
Cook the carrots for 2-3 minutes in boiling and salted water until fork tender and immediately remove and add to your heated pan
Pan sear the blanched carrots with a Tbsp of butter or Olive oil. Season with salt & pepper to your taste
Plate your carrots with dollops of mint sauce, a drizzle of balsamic glaze, crushed up hazelnuts or seeds, a toss of pea sprouts, generous shaving of cheese and the drippings from the pan. Toss it all together and you have a delicious and fun veggie side that everyone will love!
