Steamed Carrots with Lemon-Dill Vinaigrette

Carrots are one of my favorite veggies. They keep forever in the fridge so I can always have some on hand. This simple recipe for steamed carrots with lemon-dill vinaigrette gives your boring carrots a really nice Dijon kick that isn’t overwhelming. It uses ingredients I usually have on hand (if you don’t have a fresh lemon, you can skip the zest, or use a bit of lemon pepper).

Also try my roasted carrots. They’re easy and delicious. For something a little different, my spicy cranberry glazed carrots are quite yummy too! But make these steamed carrots with lemon-dill vinaigrette first!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, Dijon, red wine vinegar and honey.
  • While still whisking, slowly pour in the olive oil. Whisk until smooth.
  • Whisk in the dill, salt and lemon zest.
  • Steam carrots in a steam basket over a large pot of simmering water, about 8 minutes. Carrots should be somewhat tender but still have a bit of ‘bite’.
  • Place carrots in a large bowl or pan and drizzle with the vinaigrette. Toss to coat and let set for 5 minutes to absorb the dressing.
