Easy, quick to put together veggie side dish. Goes well with any main course.
Make and share this Buttered Baby Carrots and Sweet Peas recipe from Food.com.

- salt and pepper
- In a skillet, saute carrots in butter for 5 minutes.
- Stir in remaining ingredients.
- Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until vegetables are done.
This is a nice and different way to do carrots and peas. I certainly wouldn't want to be using this recipe all the time but I definitely will make it again. I think I will add some basil next time. Just a very nice change!
I halved this recipe for two of us, but I think if I would have made the entire recipe it would have been eaten. Very easy to make and so tasty! I used margarine instead of butter (watching those calories) but otherwise, no changes.
Had a bag of carrots left over from the weekend so used those and didn't measure. I cooked the carrots for ten minutes in the microwave and then added the butter, a can of baby peas (we don't care for frozen veggies), water and sugar. When done cooking I added the salt and pepper and stirred. Nice easy side dish.
