Orange and Ginger Carrots

I recently purchased a juicer. Anyone with a juicer knows that you have A LOT of carrots around the house all of a sudden. I decided to actually cook and eat these carrots, rather than squeeze the life out of them and throw the pulp out to the chickens.

Orange and Ginger Carrots

1 lbs carrots

2 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp fresh grated ginger

1/3 cup orange juice

Salt & Pepper to taste

dry basil, dill or mint to garnish (very pretty, but optional)

Oh ginger, you ugly little root

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Turn down to low and cover tightly with a lid. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Remove the lid and boil off any remaining liquid.

Garnish and serve hot (with butter if you’re smart).

    I adore cooked carrots. Ginger added would be nice. Great combo. My hubby hates cooked carrots and ginger both but I will just be making it for me then….

    I have a new juicer that I’m about to try out, so I’ll have to try this with some of those carrots 🙂

    I use fresh ginger with great abandon in cooking these days, and this sounds lovely!
