I REALLY don’t like cooked carrots! Let’s just say my mother got new carpet when I was a kid, because my father forced me to eat my carrots and I didn’t make it to the bathroom in time. I’ll let you use your imagination.

As an adult, I do try new things and I try things in new ways to see if I like them. My husband and son-in-law both love cooked carrots, so I do make them occasionally, so they can get their fix.

Our family has also fallen in love with the multi-colored carrots (yellow, purple, etc.). You can see them in the photo above.

This particular carrot recipe is my favorite so far! They were really delicious! And that’s from a carrot hater! I hope  you enjoy!

1 tbsp ollve oil

2 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped or through garlic press
