Just a bit of seasoning for this side dish. The barest hint of flavor, and the quiet scent of honey (miele) and herbs on a breeze.
Some side dishes shine as a main meal. This delicate carrot recipe sounds like a supporting actor. In my opinion, it’s no peas and carrots. If you’ve never had a supper of peas and carrots by themselves, then it’s possible you’ve never had chocolate chip cookies for breakfast.
I’m just saying, and it’s all I have to say about that.
The first time we ate these carrots, they were served with roasted potatoes (sprinkled with Reishi mushroom powder and Maldon salt when they emerged from the oven). The pic is here. That’s a phenomenal, melt in your mouth halibut on top. That is not allegory, the fish actually melted in your mouth.
We couldn’t eat everything, so a day later we had potatoes and these carrots, with a little bit of the fish. By little bit, I mean, like hardly any fish. Completely different meal.
Without further adieu, here is the recipe (ricetta).
Honey Scented Rosemary Mint Carrots
4 cups thin sliced carrots
1 C water
4 inches fresh rosemary stalk with leaves
6-8 fresh mint leaves
1 t honey
Put all ingredients (except honey) in a tall narrow pot, cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for about 20 minutes. Stir during this time, so the carrots are basically steamed in their own juices.
Remove from heat and stir in honey.
