What's your favorite way to cook or consume rainbow carrots?

Asked by SamIAm (8690points) February 26th, 2010

I recently discovered these delicious veggies and have had them cooked in butter with a little salt.

How do you cook and/or eat them?

I think I speak for a few dozen people when I ask, “What on earth is a rainbow carrot?”

@troubleinharlem : they’re like regular carrots but the bunches come with a whole assortment of colored carrots – my favorite are the purple ones, but i don’t discriminate, they’re all very tasty.

I would think you could prepare them just as you do any carrots. I like curried carrots.

@Samantha_Rae Instead of salt, throw them in a pan with butter and some brown sugar. Absolutely delicious.

I like carrots boiled and then tossed with a little butter and some ground cumin. Yum!

Caramelized in a pan with olive oil so you add more flavor, salt and pepper and a clove of garlic…

I’m with @janbb on this one…I love carrots with cumin & butter. Another great way is to saute them in olive oil or (my preference) butter, and deglaze the pan with a little sherry. Delicious.

I’m fond of my old-fashioned steamer, especially for carrots, other veggies. I think steaming retains more nutrients, adds a texture that isn’t quite attainable with other cooking methods. I have one of those weird collapsible metal things that fits inside a large saucepan. I too use cumin and butter with carrots; I simply add them to the shallow half inch or so of water at the bottom of the saucepan before steaming, and the flavors are imparted into the carrots above. But what do I know?

Try them roasted, in olive oil, in the oven. Delicious

Boil them a bit, then saute them in butter with a little lemon juice and a few chunks of fresh ginger to finish the cooking.
