I don’t remember where I found this steamed carrots recipe, but I’ve been using it for years and we love it! It’s so easy to make, and really kicks plain old carrots up a notch! And the best part is that the kids gobble them up!
Steamed Carrots with Lemon-Dill Butter
3 cups baby carrots, trimmed (or peeled, sliced carrots)
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
2-3 tsp. lemon juice (if you don’t have any, it’s still good w/out)
2 Tbsp. fresh dill, or 1 ½ tsp dried
¼ tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Cook carrots in steamer basket over simmering water in covered saucepan for 8-10 min or until tender. Transfer carrots to a bowl. Toss with butter, lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
Couldn’t be easier!
