Oregano Carrots Recipe

Oregano Carrots  Recipe

The oregano in this quick-and-easy recipe gives an unusual and lively mediterranean zip to the sweetness of carrots, one of our favorite root vegetables. So bright and appealing (and so packed with health-promoting beta-carotene), carrots are always welcome on the winter table.

6 carrots, cut lengthwise in inch strips
2 to 3 tablespoons butter (or half butter, half olive oil)
1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons dried oregano

1. Place carrots in a heavy pan with butter, water, and oregano.

2. Cover and steam until carrots are crisp-tender.

3. Remove cover and caramelize slightly.

thanks. I am not into cooked carrots unless in a stirfry, casserole or with honey.

My favorite carrot recipe is:
2 lb. sliced carrots, cooked until just tender crisp, about 6 min.
1 lg. onion, cut into rings, thinly sliced
1 lg. green pepper, sliced, thinly sliced

3/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. oil
1 c. vinegar
1 can tomato soup

Layer carrots, onions and green peppers in large bowl. Mix all marinade ingredients together heat in a saucepan until sugar disolves. Pour over vegetables. Marinate in refrigerator at least 24 hours. Actually the longer it marinates, the better the taste. If you use a glass bowl to layer your veggies in, it looks really pretty. Just be careful that the marinade cools off a bit so it does not break your glass bowl. Enjoy!
