The Sunday Recipe: Garlic Carrots


This is a recipe that I forget about from time to time but remembered recently because my local farm stand had lots of carrots and garlic. I’m not sure where I first got the idea, but it’s simple and delicious.

Garlic Carrots


  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed or chopped
  • 1 pound of carrots, cut into disks


  1. Heat the oil over medium heat for a minute or two.
  2. Add the garlic and saute for 1 to 3 minutes until it starts to sizzle.
  3. Add the carrots and stir to coat with the garlic oil.
  4. Cover but stir periodically.
  5. Turn the heat down to medium low after about five minutes.
  6. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes until carrots are soft enough to eat.
  7. Enjoy!

    I make this all the time, but I also add salt, lemon juice, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Everyone loves it! 😉
