When I looked for some kind of vegetable to serve with our leftover pork the other day, all I found was a bag of carrots. I don’t usually think about cooking carrots, but since I didn’t have anything else, they had to do. I wanted to make something fast and easy, so I reached for Cook’s Illustrated Quick Recipe Cookbook. To my delight, this recipe produces tender carrots with a sweet, bright flavor. I used yellow, orange and red carrots, so they looked impressive as well.
I now see carrots in a new light. Of course I’ll be making glazed carrots again soon, but now I’m on a mission to find new ways to prepare carrots. Please share your favorite recipes.
