Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a large wide and shallow pan, add the butter, shallots, pepper, and turmeric and cook until the shallots are tender and translucent, about 5 minutes.   
  • Add the carrots, orange juice, and salt to the pan, cover and cook until tender and liquid is almost gone, about 13 to 15 minutes*. Serve immediately.

Notes

Baby carrots can be used, but cook time will need to be adjusted.
It's best to use fresh-squeezed orange juice over store-bought for best flavor.
