This is great. I tried this using baby carrots to cut the prep time to zero. Try adding a teaspoon of dill seed and a teaspoon of lemon, for a little extra something special. Delish!

These were very good. Quick and only a few ingredients. Made them to go with a roast and mashed potatoes. My husband just about hogged them all!

So easy and absolutely devoured I used 3 medium/large carrots and cut them diagonly and only used 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter and 3/4 tablespoon of dried parsley and they were great - would be more than happy to use this as a basic tecnique in the future and maybe do with some honey for a sweet carrot or add some spice or curry for something with a little heat, you could let the imagination go a little wild here.
