Carrots make a colourful accompaniment to any broil or baked meat. This recipe cookes very quickly because the carrots are shredded into long strands.


  1. Using vegetable peeler or food processor, shred carrots into long strands.
  2. In pot of boiling salted water, cook carrots for 1-2 minutes or until barely tender.
  3. Drain and refresh under cold running water and drain again.
  4. In skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
  5. Stir in honey and lemon juice and mix well.
  6. Add carrots.
  7. Stir and toss 2-3 minutes or until carrots are heated through and well coated.
  8. Season with pepper and nutmeg to taste.

It's pretty easy. I switched out the butter for coconut oil. Tasted good!

Tried this in the microwave. It worked perfectly. Cook the julienned carrots with about 1/4 cup water for about 7-8 minutes on high, and then add the seasonings and honey after draining and heat on high for 30 seconds. Presto! Super side dish! Thanks!!

Delicious & interesting way to prepare carrots! It was quite time consuming to shred the carrots without a food processor but worth the results - it looked really appealing on the plate. The lemon & honey flavours were barely noticeable but the nutmeg makes this dish unique & tasty.
