Pennywise Platter is tomorrow!
Have you ever fought over the vegetables at your table? We have and it’s recipes like this that make me realize why. Simple to make, these carrots are pan fried in butter or ghee until tender and sweet. Sprinkled with a bit of parsley and sea salt, and it’s one delicious side.
And don’t feel guilty about using butter either! This “real food” has very important nutrients in it and it helps you absorb fat-soluable vitamins. I used these beautiful carrots from New Seasons that are purple rimmed and orange inside. It made for a beautiful presentation. It cost two dollars for a bunch, but if I had bought my usual five pound bag of carrots it would have been even cheaper to make!
This uses six carrots and is about four servings, but do keep in mind that the carrots shrink a bit as they cook, so four people just might end up fighting over the portions. My husband and I could easily eat two portions each.
