This simple carrot side dish is fast and easy to make. There is something magical about the combination of carrots and dill. It is a great use for leftover champagne. Sweet white wine may be substituted for the champagne. If you want to avoid alcohol, try my Carrots Vichy.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and thinly sliced into coin shapes
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup champagne
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons fresh dill weed, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried

Preparation:

In a heavy saucepan, saute the carrots in the butter over medium heat until they begin to brown. Add the chicken stock, champagne, honey, and salt. Stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook over low heat until al dente (tender to the bite but not mushy soft), about 5 minutes.

Remove cover and cook until liquid has almost evaporated. Add lemon juice and dill weed and gently stir to combine. Serve hot.

Yield: 4 servings
