Carrots - Facts & Ideas

Did you know? Beta carotene is fat-soluble, so carrots are healthier for you if they are cooked with a small amount of fat (olive oil or low cholesterol margarine).

ADD grated carrots to: salads, meatloaf mixtures, pasta sauces, cookie & cake batters.

BOIL carrots with potatoes & mash as usual.

FREEZE leftover cooked carrots (& any other leftover cooked veggies) & add to canned or homemade soup later.

RECIPE: 3 cups sliced carrots
1/4 cup water
1-1/2 tsp. oleo

Bring to boil in saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover & cook 5 minutes. Uncover & increase heat to high. Cook2-3 minutes longer, shaking pan occasionally until carrots are crisp-tender & liquid is evaporated. Season to taste with salt & pepper.
