Baby Carrot Love…

Friday! Well early early Friday for me, another late night. Went to see Bride Wars tonight with some other “Newport Mommies” and had a great time. I’d probably leave the guys at home for this one. It’s perfect for a ladies night that’s for sure.

For all you Mommy’s out there who would love to win a great Bumbleride double stroller, check out this blog to enter: I Never Grew UP.

Well, for this holiday weekend, I leave you with a very simple, yet beautiful little carrot recipe that I LOVE. Garlic and ginger is such a great combo, so fresh and fragrant. Mind you, use any carrot form you’d like, slice them, dice them even julliene them, just steam them first until slightly tender. I found this cute bag of baby carrots at the neighborhood grocery store (totally over priced), but had to have them. You can’t get much easier than this one, give it a whirl, you won’t be disappointed!

Garlic Gingered Baby Carrots

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled and grated

1 small package baby carrots, approx 2 Cups, steamed until fork tender

Pinch of salt

1. Heat olive oil into a medium skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic and ginger for 1 minute. Add baby carrots and salt. Saute for 2 minutes then serve.

2 servings


My boys are so goofy, I had a good laugh at this snapshot. Have a great holiday weekend! See ya’ll next week for some sweets. I can’t take it anymore!

    I tried this tonight, It was really good, easy to do and healthy too. Although I dint have extra virgin oil so I just used canola oil but still tasted good. I love your recipes and go through them every night 🙂 Thanks for being so generous in sharing your recipes.

    Your boy is so cute in the pic. Looking forward to more of your recipes!!

    Hey Jenny, those carrots look so good. I have been trying to come up with different ways to serve them and I am going to try these. I know that my husband will LOVE them, the big test is going to be my 17 year old son’s “picky palate”!!! Thanks for posting and I photo is really good.

    That looks yummy. My baby carrots always come from Wal-Mart and never have those cute little stems on them…

    Baby carrots are my favorite, but only can find them if I go shopping near St. Louis.
    My husband is a jewel as he went to see “Bride Wars” with me. He even liked it.

    I’ve been doing a lot of ginger with carrots lately. I think it’s the combination of the sweet carrots and the bite of ginger that draws me in.

    I wish I could find some beautiful carrots like these!! And I really want to see that movie – I’ll have to drag my sisters along with me since it sounds like one my hubby won’t enjoy! 🙂
