My partner, Dan has told me on many separate occasions how good these carrots that they serve at work are. (Yes, Dan is given lunch at work, his life is great). They are basically just carrots, soaked in butter and ginger. But Dan eats them every chance he can get.
So I finally decided I needed to make them myself to understand the magic! Carrots are sweet and pair really well with the bite and kind of lingering sweetness of ginger. And I think we can all agree that butter goes with everything. Let the experiments commence!
I like my vegetable roasted, so I did these in the oven, but you could definitely prepare them by sautéing them in the ginger butter or by steaming them and then dousing them in the butter. These are as advertised, deliciously sweet and gingery and buttery!
Next time I might up the ginger level further by dicing some ginger finely so that you get a little bite of it every once in a while. Maybe even crystalized ginger would be good thrown in? Make these for the carrot lovers and vegetable phobics in your life. They go down easy!
