Carrots Vichy

Skip to recipe

I was searching for a new way to cook carrots and then I discovered this recipe. It meets all my criteria. It’s easy, fast, and delicious.

I love that the carrots take on a slightly sweet taste without being overwhelming. Plus, it seems like I always have fresh carrots in the fridge, so this recipe has become one of my favorites. Carrots Vichy also works with medium diced parsnips.

When cutting the carrots, use a sharp chopping knife, like a Vegetable Knife, that will easily slice through them without wavering.

You could also use a 7-5/8" Petite Chef knife or 7" Santoku knife to cut the carrots. Whatever knife you use, try to cut the carrots into even slices for uniform cooking. Also, check out our handy tutorial on How to Slice Carrots.

For chopping the parsley, use the Petite Chef to shave leaves off the bunch and then rock your knife over the pile of parsley to chop.
