Steamed Carrots With Olive Oil and Lemon Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 2 bunches of small carrots with tops
    Ice
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    2-3 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 lemon

Directions

  1. Peel the carrots and cut off the tops, leaving just about 1/2 inch on.
  2. Place them in a steamer basket and steam over medium-high heat for about 10 to 15 minutes until they are tender enough to be pierced with a fork, but not overcooked or mushy.
  3. While the carrots are steaming, fill a large bowl with ice water.
  4. When they're cooked, dunk the carrots in for just a few seconds to stop the cooking process.
  5. Place them on a serving plate, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and drizzle with olive oil. Squeeze the juice from the lemon over the carrots.

Serves 4 to 6.
