Nadia and Kaye Disaster Chef Simple Recipes for Cooks Who Can'tKaye always bemoans the fact that her children won’t eat vegetables, but she usually either overcooks or undercooks them, with not even a flash of butter or olive oil, so it’s no wonder her kids run for the hills when she makes them. This is a simple, effective way to tart up a carrot.

  • Yield: 4 Servings


  • 8 carrots, cut into rounds
  • sea salt
  • good knob of unsalted butter
  • ½ onion, finely chopped or grated
  • ½ small bunch of flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
How to Make It
  1. Place the carrots in a steamer basket and sprinkle with salt. Place over steaming water over a medium-high heat for 3–6 minutes, depending on how tender you like your carrots (test with the tip of a knife).
  2. When the carrots are cooked, remove the steamer basket from the heat and set aside, still covered.
  3. Pour away the water from the steamer base, place it over a low heat, and melt the butter in it. When the butter is just melted, add the onion and stir for 1 minute.
  4. Return the carrots to the pan, stir them with the onions, then throw in the parsley and serve.
