- a large bunch of Parisienne carrots
- 2 lemongrass stalks
- pepper and salt to taste
Kitchen equipment needed
- paring knife
- brush or clean sponge
- large pan with a colander that fits inside & lid
Preparation — 10 minutes
REMOVE the carrot greens, instead of throwing them away you can make a pesto with them if you like. Scrub the dirt off the carrots using a brush or sponge. RINSE them with cold water.
Finishing the steamed Parisienne carrots — 15 minutes
FILL a large pan with a layer of water and place the colander inside. ADD the rinsed Parisienne carrots in the colander. CRUSH the lemongrass stalks and add them to the carrots. PLACE the lid on and steam them for about 15 minutes, depending on the size of the carrots. REMOVE the lemongrass stalks and SEASON the carrots with pepper and salt. Great as a side dish with lots of meat kinds, such as this old-fashioned braised beef. Enjoy!
