Baby Carrots

Happy Saturday!  Be sure to check out the giveaway sponsored by In the Clear {here}

Carrots may be one of my favorite side dishes.  They are sweet and healthy, they just take so long to boil! After I think of it as a side dish, my dinner is 5 minutes from being complete and I'm too stubborn to serve cold food.  Must be my dad's picky nature instilled in me - that man will complain if any food hits his plate that won't give him some kind of burn.

This foil-wrapped side dish takes about 10-15 minutes over medium-high heat, which seems to be the standard for a lot of our grilled proteins.  A little planning on my part, and I've got a colorful addition to my dinner table.


For our family of 2, plus two halves, I made a 1/2 lb of baby carrots.  You can adjust to fit your family's needs.


You'll need:
baby carrots
1 shallot, minced
1 Tbsp of tarragon (about 2 stems with leaves removed)
1 Tbsp butter


Pile on the carrots, sprinkle with shallots and tarragon, dot with butter.  Season with salt and pepper.

Grill over medium-high heat for about 10-15 minutes.  Watch for steam when opening up the foil pack!

Those look really yummy! I love carrots too, but usually I just stirfry or roast them.
