As a newlywed, I cooked some carrots in butter. The groom says "my mom's are better"! Grrr- Well, I got the recipe and they ARE better!!! Try it.
- 4 carrots, sliced in coin shapes
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon oil
- 1 dash garlic powder
- 1 dash salt
- water, to keep it from sticking
- Combine in a saucepan and simmer covered for 20 minutes.
These were excellent!! Even picky DH liked them. I followed the recipe exactly as posted. Never would have thought to put garlic on carrots, but with the sugar it's a perfect blend of flavors. This is the way I'll be making carrots from now on!
This is an easy recipe, but I like to add more sugar, (at least 2 tsps), and I omit the oil, and add a little grated parmesan just before serving.
These were okay. I have made carrots and put garlic butter on them after cooked for years. This is perhaps an easier recipe. Maybe I cut my carrots too thin but they would have been mush in 20 minutes -- 15 minutes was more than sufficient.
