To keep vegetables interesting, I came up with this side dish. Anytime I want to feel better, keep a healthy weight, or just have my food taste good, I start to experiment with different flavors on my veggies. Anyone can make this dish in a flash. Kids like it too.
Carrots With a Punch!
slice 4 large carrots
chop 1/2 onion
mince 1 clove garlic
grate 1 tsp. fresh ginger root (I keep some in the freezer, at all times)
I get my saute pan hot and add a good thick drizzle of olive oil.
Add the onion and garlic first and wait 2-3 min to be translucent.
Cook on high heat for 6-10 min.
Don't overcook! Mushy carrots are yucky!
Stir in fresh ginger and serve hot.
In the picture above, you can see that a little dark color is OK. When cooking over high heat this happens. Don't worry it adds flavor. I watch my salt intake. I let the people in my family add salt to my veggie dishes if they need it.
I love this side dish for lunch or dinner. Carrots are King! Carrots are high in alpha-carotene and beta-carotene. A great antioxidant, and great for the immune system.
Most people keep carrots in the fridge. I hope you try it with the ginger. Eat well, live well, and eat your carrots.
