Here I show you my carrot vegetables recipe. It’s easy to prepare delicious carrots as a side dish. 

Carrots are indeed a very healthy vegetable. The root vegetable contains the highest amount of carotene of all plants. But vitamin C, potassium and iron are also favourable for a wholesome diet.

The stomach-friendliness of cooked carrots is well known. They are just likeable little fellows 😉

I show you how to prepare it step by step in my cooking video. I wish you good luck and bon appétit!

1. Tips for Preparing Carrot Vegetables

To make the preparation safe and easy for you, I have made a short summary.

Get the ingredients ready, wash and peel the carrots.

Carrots cut types
You can cut carrots in different ways. Above carrot slices, in the middle carrot lozenges and below carrot carrots.

Cut Carrots

Now decide on a type of cut:

vegetable slices cook faster,

vegetable loaves stay firm to the bite better,

tourned beets look particularly beautiful on the plate.

Important: Please cut the vegetables in the same size so that they cook evenly.

Season

Put the sliced beetroot in the pot, add a little water, butter, salt, pepper, nutmeg and sugar and cook with the lid on.

In the video, I show you the vitamin-preserving preparation in a special pot with temperature measurement on the lid.

I cook the vegetables in a temperature range of 90-140°C.

Finalize

Depending on the cut, the vegetables will be cooked al dente after 10 minutes.

Remove the lid, allow the liquid to boil down briefly and refine with herbs.

You can now season your vegetables again with salt, pepper, nutmeg and sugar.
