Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add oil to large non stick skillet. Swirl to coat.
  2. Add Bay Leaves to infuse the oil.
  3. Add carrots and water.
  4. Partially cover the pan and cook for 10 minutes until carrots are almost tender
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste, increase heat to medium-high and cook for approximately 4 minutes, until carrots are tender and lightly browned.
  6. Stir frequently.
  7. These directions are so easy, they can be adjusted for time, amount of bay leaves, etc.
  8. I have also used with sage and rosemary. All variations are delicious!
  9. If you like a softer carrot, cook longer, shorter time for more crunch.

Ideal way to prepare carrots! Really like the new flavor dimension the bay leaf brought. I made as written using the full 6 bay leaves and would not change a thing. This is a keeper that I am sure will be made often, thanks for the post.

Wow, these were absolutely delicious! I love that the carrots get caramelized and get lightly browned. It gives the carrots another flavor dimension. A delicious dimension. Into my best of the best file this goes. Thank you!
