Cook carrots properly – that’s how it works

Soft-boiled carrots taste particularly good as a vegetable side dish with meat and fish.

  1. Bring enough water to a boil in a saucepan with a little salt.
  2. Add the carrots to the boiling water and let them cook, covered, for about five to fifteen minutes. The thickness of the carrot pieces determines the cooking time.
  3. You can use the cooking test to find out whether the carrots are done: poke a piece of carrot with a knife. If it slips easily off the knife, the carrots are done cooking. Pour off the water.
  4. Season the carrots with salt and pepper to taste and add a tablespoon of butter for flavor.
