I have never been a raw carrot lover. I always really wished I was, because they sound so fun. Just look at Bugs Bunny…. the way he would cheerfully take a big CRUNCH out of a crispy carrot. *sigh* I used to try raw carrots all the time when I was little, hoping that maybe one time they would taste super good. Unfortunately, they always tasted the same – like dirt. Seriously, they taste just like dirt. And I don’t care how fun it sounds to chew on dirt, no one wants to go around chewing on it, right?
Anyway….. even though I don’t prefer my carrots raw, this is a really tasty alternative that still gives you all the glorious health benefits from those orange veggies. 🙂
- 3 or 4 carrots peeled and thinly sliced
- olive oil
- 1/3 of a large onion chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- grated parmesan cheese
Drizzle some olive oil in a frying pan, dump in your carrots, sprinkle with salt & pepper, and saute for about 10 minutes over medium heat. Stir every little bit to keep the carrots from burning. Add in your onion and more olive oil if needed. Taste a carrot and add more salt/pepper if necessary. Sprinkle a little oregano on top. Stir and cook until carrots are fork tender. Reduce heat and generously sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Stir the veggies around a bit and taste to see if they need more cheese (they probably do, because why not?). Yum!
