Microwave carrots are one of the quickest and easiest ways to add some veggies to your plate. The bright and sweet combo of steamed carrots with a tab of butter and sprinkle of salt and fresh ground pepper is total comfort food and absolutely worth the (extremely minimal) prep.
Servings 1 serving
- 2 medium carrots peeled and chopped 1/2-inch
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1/2 tablespoon salted butter
- Salt and pepper
Place carrots and water in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Top with a microwave-safe plate and microwave for 3 minutes. Allow to sit for 1 minute. Very carefully remove plate (steam will be hot!) check carrots for doneness, and if necessary cook for 1 minute more with 1 minute rest.
Drain excess water and add butter. Toss until butter is melted and carrots are coated. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!
