Carrots are always a good side dish that goes well with many meals. Add a little butter and fresh dill and it adds extra flavor to your carrots!
Buttery carrots with fresh dill seems like a good choice every once in a while since carrots are one vegetable that everyone seems to like in our house. We try to change our carrot recipes around and try something different with dinner. This one uses butter and dill, which gives it a great flavor. We just planted some dill on the patio and it seems to grow very fast; you get quite a bit, so we used this in our recipe. It was a good choice.

Making the Carrots with Dill:
We used regular carrots and peeled and cut them on the bias, about ½ inch thick. You can always use a bag of bought carrots that are already cut and peeled, they work just as well. Boil the carrots on high, then, lower the heat to simmer and cook for about 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, test the carrots with a fork to make sure they are tender enough for you. If the fork goes through the carrot easily, they are done, if not, cook for a few more minutes.
When carrots are tender, put them into a bowl with the butter and dill and mix.
Now they are done! It's very simple to make, but gives the carrots a different but delicious, fresh taste. Serve as a healthy side with your favorite meal.Print
