Sautéed Carrots with Parsley


My nephew, David, showed me how to make sautéed carrots. He is a highly skilled professional cook.

These Sautéed Carrots are sweet, tender and completely delicious. They are also healthy. It’s a savory side dish, easy and quick!

My 2 teenagers love them. What a good reason to make these carrots every week! It’s now my best carrot recipe:)

Thank you David!
