Instructions

  1. Peel then chop the carrots into slices.
  2. Boil in water for 8 minutes (you could steam them too).

  3. Drain carrots and tip away water.

  4. Using the same pan to save on washing up, put the carrots back in and throw in the oil.

  5. Cook on a medium heat for 7 minutes.

  6. Add the herbs, salt and pepper.
  7. Add maple syrup (or honey).

  8. Cook the carrots on a medium heat for a further five minutes - they should be soft through the inside and just beginning to brown on the outside when ready. Turn up or lower heat as necessary.

  9. Done!

      Yess, Dave came up with the idea from last year. As far as I remember it’s originaly from his auntie 🙂

  3. Hello, honey is actually not Vegan!
    But there are amazing substitutes like maple syrup, agave nectar etc.
    Hopefully this helps someone, wouldn’t want to misinform someone.
    Some Vegans do eat it though, it’s all about preferences.
