Baby Carrot Love…

Tags: ,

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’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.

    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 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!!
