Ranch Flavored Carrots

Monday, June 2, 2014

I hope everyone had a nice weekend!  The weather here in PA was absolutely beautiful.  It's been nice to finally enjoy some nice weather after such a horrible and LONG winter.  We were able to get most of our vegetable garden planted.  I'm waiting on two new window boxes I ordered from Amazon to finish up some planting for our back porch.  

I came across this recipe awhile ago and finally made it over the weekend.  These Ranch Flavored Carrots are amazing...





Ranch Flavored Carrots
(Original recipe posted on Chef in Training)




Ingredients:
  • 1 package of baby carrots
  • 5 Tbsp. butter; melted
  • 3 Tbsp. brown sugar; see note below.  
  • 1 package dry ranch dip mix; I used a store brand and it worked great.  


Directions:

Steam the carrots until soft and tender.
In a bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar and ranch dip mix.  
Pour over the carrots and keep warm until ready to serve.


Note:  I made this recipe a few times and each time have cut back on the brown sugar and the taste is still amazing.  I do have a hard time adding sugar to vegetables.  Use your own judgment when preparing.

  1. I have no trouble adding sugar to vegetables, but I'll follow your lead and cut back. Thanks for the recipe!
