1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp olive oil
freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/4 onion, diced (optional)
2 small cloves garlic, finely diced
1/4 cup of vegetable or chicken broth or white wine
1/4 cup pasta sauce or parmesan cheese
1. Take the strips of carrot and sprinkle with salt.
2. Coat the bottom of a large pan with the olive oil and heat on medium-high. When hot, add the carrots. Toss frequently (this works well with tongs). When the carrots start to soften, add the garlic and pepper (add onion here too if you like). Add the broth or wine and scrape any bits of flavour from the bottom.
3. Keep tossing for a couple of minutes until some of the carrots get brown around the edges (don't burn!) and the garlic is golden. Serve with your favorite pasta sauce or just add Parmesan cheese and enjoy without the added sauce.
Serves 2 as a main dish
