Ahh...yum! I love these carrots! Go ahead...double or triple this! Add more garlic or sugar if you want! You can even do it ahead of time and just warm it up in the skillet before everyone sits down. Our favorite way to eat carrots!
- 2 tablespoons butter (no substitutes!)
- 1 clove garlic, pressed
- 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
- 8 ounces sliced carrots
- 1⁄4 cup toasted almond
- Melt butter and saute garlic 2 minutes.
- Add soy sauce, water and sugar.
- Stir to combine.
- Add carrots and saute 5 minutes.
- Add almonds, continue cooking 2 minutes.
- Serve immediately!
This was a unique flavor. I left out the sugar because I don't keep it in the house - and I don't think it needed it. My husband, however, didn't like the addition of the almonds. I'll leave them out next time.
This is easy, quick and delicious! Assuming you have the carrots to start with, the short ingredient list includes staples that almost everyone has on hand, so there's not a lot of special shopping to do, which I thought was a big plus. I sauteed the carrots over a somewhat lowish-medium flame a few minutes longer than the recipe called for, and got beautiful caramelization. To my astonishment, my husband said, "You should have made more carrots." (!!) I will definitely make this again.
Great simple recipe! I exchanged pecans for the almonds because my husband's severe allergy. Thanks!
