Butter-Steamed Carrots
Time Required: 5 (12 min. total)

Something about the butter makes these carrots so sweet that you want to just keep eating them up.  (You could also throw in a few zucchini squash if desired.)  Makes a great side dish because it is quick to get going and takes care of itself until done.


8 carrots -- use less if carrots are large
4 tsp butter
3 tbsp water


1.  Turn skillet on medium heat and melt butter.

2.  Scrub carrots with a brush used for vegetables.  Slice at 1/4 ” diagonals. Put carrots in pan and cover.

3.  Simmer on medium low stirring occasionally, until carrots are tender, approx. 7-9 min.
