Some people spend hours on Sundays making delicious tomato sauces and braised meats. We wind completely down on Sundays and make quick, simple dinners so we can rest for every last second of the weekend before our hectic week start up again. Carrots are so popular in our house that we buy 10 pounds of them at a time. Between snacking and roasting, they usually barely last a week.
I hesitate to even refer to this dish as a recipe. It is more a couple of quick tips to a nice side dish.
We start by peeling and slicing 2 pounds of carrots. Mince 3 cloves of garlic and a 1/2 inch knob of ginger. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and toss with 2 tablespoons of canola oil and 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
