Method

  1. Peel the carrots and trim off the ends. Cut in half lengthways, then cut on the diagonal into slices about ½cm thick. Place the carrots in a steamer basket and steam for 5-7 mins until softened, or place in a heatproof bowl with a little water and microwave on High for 3-5 mins.

  2. To finish the dish, gently heat the butter in a frying pan. Tip in the caraway seeds and cook for 30 secs until they start sizzling. Add the carrots and stir into the butter until glossy and heated through, about 3 mins. Toss through the parsley and serve.

We found the Caraway seeds quite sharp and unpleasant to eat... Perhaps they could do with being ground first? Anyway, unlikely to try this again...

Served with Christmas day Gressingham Duck (amongst other things) prepped as directed Christmas Eve and all disappeared quickly on Christmas Day. Proved a simple but tasty accompaniment.
