I’m combining all the great ideas i’ve seen for carrots lately into one recipe. Haven’t tried this yet, so if you try it, let me know how it goes! I’ll make it this week.
Steam, boil, or roast carrots until nearly done.
In a heavy-bottomed pan or pot, melt butter, coconut oil, or walnut oil over medium. Wait until the pan is hot. Add carrots.
Squeeze the juice from one orange on top. Add a tiny bit of lemon juice. Stir often, turning heat to medium-low. Cook a few minutes before adding a drizzle of maple syrup or honey (or a tablespoon or two.) Add a pinch of salt and pepper (bet this’d be good with a little cayenne.) Cook 4-5 mins, stirring often.
Seperately, mix up the tahini sauce. Add equal parts tahini and maple syrup with a little water.
Serve, with tahini sauce drizzled over carrots.
If this sounds too sweet for you, skip the maple syrup in the tahini sauce and make a sugar-free traditional Lebanese tahini sauce!
