Carrots Vermouth is such a beautiful, simple side dish. I'm starting to think about holiday food. Are you? Your family will love it when you serve these brilliant carrots at your holiday table (or anytime). Total time to make it: 45 minutes.
Carrots Vermouth is to die for.
This recipe originally comes from an excellent cookbook, Ciao Italia Family Classics by Mary Ann Esposito (affiliate link). For once, I didn't make any changes to the recipe. Some carrots, butter, salt, honey, and vermouth. The alcohol burns off and leaves this delectable flavor. If you don't do dairy, you can use coconut oil.
Do yourself a favor and buy this cookbook now; the recipes are absolutely amazing. I swear Mary Esposito is the Julia Child of Italian cooking. Every. Single. Recipe. Is. Out. Of. This. World.
Don (Who Doesn't Like Carrots) Likes Carrots Vermouth!
Unless carrots are in either a pot roast or carrot cake, Don doesn't generally like them. But he did like these. I think they are stupendous, and I can't wait to make them again. The flavor bursts in your mouth and you just want to keep eating them. Luckily, they are low in calories and high in good-for-you vitamins and nutrients. Make them yourself and let me know how you like them.
