5 Ways To Cook Carrots

Share



Vegetables don’t have to be boring and they can certainly taste amazing!  A vegetable prepared one way may get turned up noses from your children, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try that vegetable again.  Cooked carrots is one of those things for us.  Carrots, diced and overcooked till mushy, end up in the garbage disposal.  Cooked carrots till slightly crunchy, and add a little flavor, and they are devoured instantly.

It’s imperative to experiment and find which ways your kids like to eat their vegetables.  Here are 5 ways and a recipe to try.

  1. Braised:  Simmer in chicken broth.  When cooked to desired texture, add a touch of butter and salt.
  2. Roasted: On baking sheet, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and parmesan cheese.  Cook at 400 for about 20 minutes.roasted carrots.jpg
  3. Steamed: I do this super quick and cooked to perfection in my Rice cooker/ steamer.
  4. Sautéed: Delicious in stir-fry’s and a great compliment to other vegetables.  Pour  1 TBL oil in a pan.  Add chopped vegetables.  Stir every minute or so until vegetables are cooked.
  5. Try different ways to flavor cooked carrots, such as Ginger-Orange Carrots.  This recipe came from my running partner, Eliece.

Funny thing is carrots are my least like cooked vegetable, if I do eat them cooked it’s gotta be steamed. I like raw carrots the best though, no ranch/dip just some carrots to crunch on.

We love carrots! Braised with some butter and maple syrup is the current favorite but we like them every which way but raw!

We usually steam carrots, sometimes we add some butter and the slightest amount of sugar…it’s nice if terrible for you. Luckily my 7 month son eats his baby food carrots…loves them.
