What herbs go well with carrots?

Hmmm…how about almost all of them?

I’m only partially kidding. This recipe incorporates FIVE different herbs and frankly, it works. Carrots, on their own, have a slightly sweet flavor that lends itself well to help from spices and herbs.

For this recipe, I used garlic, dill, parsley, thyme, and rosemary together, adding some beautiful color and complex flavors to the carrots.

How to cook carrots on the stovetop

Pretty simple cooking method here! Keep a couple things in mind as you start this recipe, though:

Make sure you slice the carrots pretty thin. The thicker the coins, the longer you’ll have to cook them so they don’t stay completely crunchy.

Keep the stovetop heat at medium to medium-high — but take care not to let it get TOO hot or you risk burning the garlic and shallots.

Oh, and last one — don’t walk away! These garlic herb carrots don’t take long to cook (a total of 7 minutes). The biggest mistake many people make when cooking at home is walking away from the stove. While the garlic, shallots, and carrots are cooking, you should be stirring occasionally with a spatula.
