Carrot Recipe You’ll Love

Real Restaurant Recipe

How about something easy, tasty, healthy and colorful for your plates? Cooked Carrots do not lose their nutritional value!

I believe that cooking (or over-cooking) some vegetables can reduce some of their natural nutritional value.

But research now indicates that cooking carrots (to a point) results in increasing the antioxidant value of carrots (University of Arkansas).

What is needed, then, is a recipe for carrots that is flavorful. Here is one of several on this website that has worked well with restaurant guests. Plates are cleaned up at the table.
