Cooked Carrots

Hurray for a little more hardcore hobbit action. Twice this week! It’s been a big hobbit week. During a big hobbit week like this one sometimes there is a need for something that can be done up as a quick nutritious side dish. For those times when I’ve almost forgotten my veggie sidedish and I’ve decided to wrinkle my nose at the mention of salad. Sure you can do this stove top but sometimes that smacks of effort when you are already hungry-lazy. In the game cooked carrots call for carrots and a scoop of lard. I decided to also add some parsley to see if I can get this to crit. I believe it may have worked!

  • 2 cup carrots, sliced
  • 1 tbl butter, salted
  • 1 tsp brown sugar, unpacked
  • 2 tbl parsley, finely cut
  1. Place the carrots in a microwave safe bowl or measuring cup.
  2. Add the butter, brown sugar and parsley on top.
  3. Microwave on high for 2 minutes at a time until desired tenderness is achieved.
  4. Serve!

This makes 4 side dish servings very quickly. Each serving has 54 calories, 3 grams of fat and 1.8 grams of dietary fiber. Sometimes I substitute splenda for the brown sugar if I want even less calories or a cooking margarine instead of butter for even less fat. All the variations seem to work out deliciously the same! So easy, so tasty, so nutritious.
