Simple and sweet.Like the kind that they serve at Japanese restaurants.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut up carrot and boil in water until it's almost soft.
  2. Discard most of the water (like, leaving only a table spoonful or two) and add a little sugar and butter. Continue boiling until the carrot is soft.
  3. They are just regular carrots, and you don't have to use a lot of sugar. Carrots are naturally sweet when boiled; a little butter makes the sweetness more noticeable.Serve hot with rice.

I really enjoyed these - quick and easy; and yes! It did taste like the carrots I love when I get Japanese take-out. I used a 14.5 oz can of sliced carrots, since I wasn't quite certain if the poster used canned carrots or chopped up a cup of baby carrots. Either way, it worked out well since I was busy chopping for the fried rice. :) Thanks for posting!
