Herb Carrots | Nut + Egg Free | Optional Dairy
Recipe type: Side Dish
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-3
  • 1 bag of baby carrots
  • fat of choice {butter, ghee, bacon fat, coconut oil, etc}
  • ½ tsp of dried thyme + basil {or your two favorite herbs}
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • Salt + Pepper
  • Lemon Juice {about half a lemon's worth}
  1. Get a pot fill it about half way with water and add your carrots in. Half cover the pot with the lid and allow the carrots to cook on a low boil. It should take about 20 minutes. If you want them to cook faster just up your heat and if you want them to take their sweet time just put them on medium low and they'll be ready whenever you are!
  2. When they're done to your liking {normally fork tender with still a little bit of a "bite" to them}, drain them and add in your herbs, cumin, salt + pepper, and about a tablespoon of your favorite fat. Mix it all together and then squeeze on some lemon juice, mix it up again.
  3. Taste the carrots -- at this point I always find I need more lemon juice, but add more of whatever you need.
  4. Serve + Enjoy!
