Candied Carrots


As I was browsing the vegetable display of my grocery store in search of vegetable my family may like to eat, I could not help but noticing those fresh carrots with their stems still on. They looked so good that i had to have them. At least if they were not going to eat them, I was going to!!!

I love carrots but I have shied away from them in favor of more green vegetables. I usually cook my carrots in a small pot with water and brown sugar, but I wanted to see if using my new cookware would do the trick, and here it is.

Ingredients for 2-3: 1 bundle of fresh carrots or a small package of mini carrots, 1 tbsp of brown sugar, nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste, fresh parsley chopped.

Rinse the carrots very well, and trim the stems (Do not discard of them as they can be a great addition to a vegetable soup). Place the carrots in the large round mold. Add 1 tbsp of water, 1 tbsp of brown sugar, and 1 tbsp of butter. Sprinkle the carrots with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cover the round mold with the octogonal silpat and cook in microwave for 4-5 minutes. Et voila!!! They taste as good as if you had cooked them for 15 minutes on the stove. How awesome!!!

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
