How to cook carrots in a pan with butter

Cooking cooked carrots in a pan is simple and just follow our steps to obtain a great side dish.

Clean, peel and cut the carrots

1. First wash the carrots and remove the outer skin with a knife or vegetable peeler. When you have cleaned them all, cut them into regular rounds , trying to give them all the same thickness. Be careful at this stage, because if you cut the carrots too thin, they will lose their consistency and you risk burning them, but on the contrary, cutting them too thick would make cooking a lot longer.

Heat the butter and season

2. Once you have cut them, heat a nice knob of butter in a pan with a clove of poached garlic . You can also add some rosemary , which will flavor the butter and consequently the carrots.

3. When the butter has melted, dip the carrots and sauté them well. Be careful not to let the butter burn and add more if necessary. Add salt and pepper and leave to cook for about 10 minutes.
4. Once you have some nice shiny and crunchy carrots, turn off the heat and serve immediately. Enjoy your meal!

If you want to try this side dish but in a lighter version , what you can do is replace the butter with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Of course your carrots will be less tasty, but that is precisely why you will have to focus on flavors and aromas .

Don't forget the garlic, rigorously poached to give an exquisite flavour, salt, pepper, but also rosemary, thyme, parsley or oregano: choose according to your tastes, and enjoy your meal!
