This best carrot recipe, aka Mohrrüben, is one of the quick easy vegetarian recipes that are part of a traditional German meal, vegetarian or not. The traditional German vegetable recipes had most of the vegetables cooked and cooked until almost mush!
The newer, more modern German kitchen recognizes that a vegetable that still has a bit of crunch and has been cooked in the least amount of water possible, is much more nutritious and tasty. The carrot goes by various names in Germany: "Mohrrübe, Möhre, Karotte."
There are carrot recipes for soups, stews, and casseroles. This easy and quick carrot dish adds wonderful flavor and color to the plate.
The recipe posted uses a method that can be used with so many vegetables - the only alteration would be the cooking time and that some may need a bit of extra water added.
If you love carrots, then be sure to try my Carrot Soup as well. It's an easy-to-make recipe that can easily be altered into a variety of vegetable soups.
