These were really tasty carrots! The carrots made the milk slightly sweet and it tasted so creamy! Usually recipes warn you not to curdle the milk, but I think the effect on this recipe was appropriate. I used 2% milk and baby carrots, and added a couple of minutes to the cooking time. I recommend that you be diligent about mixing on a regular basis, particularly with baby carrots. The outcome was great! I served this as a side dish to a (sightly salty) tofu recipe so I was grateful that there was no extra salt in this recipe. Thanks so much! Great job.

Not so good. No flavor. Not worth the effort. Steamed carrots have more flavor.

This was a fine recipe. It was tasty and innovative, but I personally prefer steamed carrots with a little bit of butter. However, it was fun to try something foreign!

Looking at this I was trying to figure out what made the carrots so special. Even with my skim milk and light butter, these were so silky and decadent tasting. I bet the full fat versions are just out of this world. This recipe is just wonderful and a breeze to prepare.

When the carrots were almost done ,I added a little cornstarch mixed with cold water to thicken the leftover milk.Added 1/2 tsp salt and a dash of black pepper,made a nice sauce with the carrots and onions. The carrots were nice and sweet onions turned out to be pretty mild cooked in milk. Recommended way to cook carrots...

Very tasty carrots! I added a little salt and little sugar but otherwise followed the recipe. Nummy! Will make again!

I tried this recipe on very short notice and upon KeyWee's recommendation -- thank you, KeyWee! This is a fine side dish and a good, different approach to cooked carrots. I did add 1/2 teaspoon of salt which notably boosted the flavor but is not absolutely necessary. More people should try this dish -- I must confess, I would not have were it not for the fact that I was under the gun for a fast side dish and I took KeyWee at her word. I'm so glad that I did! And thank you, Maite G, for your super carrot recipe. I will be making this again.

This is an excellent way to make plain old carrots! I was skeptical when I read it, but this recipe really brings out the sweet carrot flavor. This goes in my "veggie keepers" file!

I did not care for these carrots, but I am giving this 5*'s because DH and the neighbors loved them! The majority rules! The neighbors carried the small amount that was left over home with them! LOL! They love being my guinea pigs! It is very easy to prepare and I love easy recipes! Thanks Maite G!
