Curried Carrots

What bunny doesn’t like some delicious carrots and a wee bit of creative spices in her bunny food?

This simple side dish isn’t your average boil-the-vegetable-to-death-’til-its-void-of-all-signs-of-life dish. Though I have to warn you that it’s going to be a bit spicy if your palate is only used to tamed foods. BTW, I apologize that the photo is not my standard “semi-professional” photo, but this Instagram shot works!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb. organic carrots ~ washed and cut into med-large chunks 
  • 1 tablespoon Garam Masala curry spice
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons organic butter
  • 1-2 teaspoons local honey
  • filtered water

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Place carrots in a stainless steel pot and put just enough filtered water to cover the carrots.
  2. Bring it to a rolling boil for about 5 minutes, then turn off the stove. Let the carrots cook, covered, for about 10 minutes. (Note: This results in al dente carrots. If you prefer softer carrots, double the cooking time.)
  3. Lightly drain the carrots and place them in a nice bowl. Some of the remaining liquid adds moisture to the dish.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients while the carrots are still steaming hot.
  5. Sprinkle some paprika just before serving. VOILA!
