Last night I pulled out one of the bags that I filled with carrots, butter and chives. I looked at how pretty they were and tasted how tender and flavorful they were and knew that I couldn't resist posting about them any longer.
- The "petite" carrots I use can be found in many supermarkets. Some even stock pre-peeled versions near bagged salad mixes.
- I sometimes add a pinch of onion powder to the bag for a little more flavor.
- Both Glade and Ziploc make steamer bags. I've used them both and love them both. They are usually found near plastic wrap, roasting bags and foil.
- For sweet glazed carrots add 1 tablespoon brown sugar to bag and omit pepper and chives.
Place all ingredients in steamer bag and seal bag closed. Microwave for 4 minutes. Let contents of bag "rest" for 1-2 minutes. Serve warm.
