Sauteed Carrots & Onions

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
  • oregano
  • 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!
