This easy herbed rainbow carrots dish (organic, of course) was a big hit with company the other night. It’s so simple! Rainbow carrots are bit more earthy-tasting and they make such a pretty presentation.
This is one of those easy recipes where you really just eyeball how much seasoning you use, depending on your taste. But here are the basics:
Herbed Rainbow Carrots
A bunch or two of rainbow carrots 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter Quarter cup of cooking sherry 2 Tablespoons brown sugar Rosemary & thyme to taste (I used just a little dried, but a smaller amount of fresh works, too. You just don’t want them to overpower the dish. You can also leave them out, entirely)
Cut the carrots in the diagonal, two inch pieces so they cook more quickly. If your yellow carrots are fat at the head like the one above, slice down the middle, too.
Steam the carrots until tender. You can do this ahead and refrigerate them, and add the seasonings when you reheat just before serving.
Heat the butter in a skillet. Add the sherry, sugar and seasons and meld the mixture. Pour the carrots in and toss till coated and warmed.
Serve and wait for the compliments!
This easy herbed carrots recipe is a great holiday dish but easy for every day, too. A small serving is more than enough as a side dish, since it’s such a sweet treat.
How clever and this sounds so yummy
Never tried rainbow carrots, and now I’m really tempted to! I hope I can find them somewhere where I live 🙂
Whole Foods or an organic market, if you can’t find them at a regular chain!
sounds like a really tasty dish – and one that could probably be cooked all times of the year 😀
OMG! I have never even heard for rainbow carrots and I LOVE carrots! This sounds so yummy. I will be trying it out for sure. Thanks for sharing!
Aren’t they pretty?
So beautiful and yummy. Love the colors!
Oh YUMMY! I absolutely love carrots and the colorful ones are so pretty. Cooking simple with fresh ingredients is the key to perfect flavor too.
they look really delicious – and the recipe looks so easy to make 😀
Rainbow carrots are my favorite!! So pretty and impressive!
Great timing! I just enjoyed a rainbow carrots side dish very similar to this one at a terrific restaurant while vacationing in California and I was wondering about: l) how to get hold of rainbow carrots and 2) how to prepare them. (I hope you only use your mind-reading powers for good, Carol.)
I’ve never cooked rainbow carrots before, but I’ve eaten them, and it’s amazing how that unexpected color makes a meal feel that much more elegant!
We just love carrots and my daughter is a vegetarian so this will go over big in my house! Going to try it soon too!
I had no idea there was such thing as rainbow carrots. That is pretty cool. We don’t eat carrots often.
Thyme and rosemary are my go to herbs. They make chicken sing…..I use it to baste (we have tons of it right outside the door) and then I use it to garnish. And carrots are a fav, i hadn’t thought of this idea, so I will be using it right away!! xxoo
I love the colors of those carrots. SO pretty. They sounds delicious too.
I have never, ever seen rainbow colored carrots. I can only imagine how colorful they look on the table. I will ask for them at the grocery store.
