This take on Vichy style carrots is sure to prove a hit if served as part of any Christmas or Winter themed dinner.
- 450 g carrots (thinly sliced on the diagonal)
- 25 g butter
- 1 tblsp honey
- 300 ml vegetable stock or water
- 1 tsp sesame seeds
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Place the carrots in a small pan with the butter, honey and enough stock or water to just cover the carrots.
- Bring to the boil, then cook over a moderate to high heat for about 12 minutes until the carrots are tender and all of the liquid has evaporated, shaking the pan occasionally to prevent sticking.
- Meanwhile, toast the sesame seeds in a heavy-based frying pan.
- Tip on to a plate and leave to cool.
- When the carrots are cooked, tip in the sesame seeds and toss until evenly coated. Season to taste.
