Sweet Creamy Carrots

Don’t be tempted to use more water in the beginning. You’re really steaming the carrots and want to retain all the nutrients. Some carrots are naturally sweeter than others so taste for sweetness and add extra sugar at the end if needed. - Jenny Jones

Sweet Creamy Carrots


  • 4 cups sliced carrots - 1/4-inch thick (about 1 pound)
  • 1/3 cup water

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  1. Place carrots in a saucepan with 1/3 cup water and bring to boil.
  2. Cover, reduce heat and cook 8 minutes, stirring once or twice, until most of the water cooks away.
  3. In a small bowl combine cornstarch with the other 1/3 cup of water until smooth and add to carrots along with the sugar. Cook, uncovered, another 2-3 minutes, stirring, until carrots are nicely coated.

    Have you tried this the French way, where after steaming them you blend them to a puree blend in a light table spoon of light brown sugar, then add butter in a fry pan and cook until hot with the butter melted into the puree carrots.

    I must have missed the sugar part but I’m assuming people know to sprinkle it on there or put it in the water did I miss that
