An Ode to Root Vegetables

Carrots, as a common and beloved root vegetable, have been a staple in many cultures’ cuisines for centuries. Our recipe is a nod to the humble roots of the peasant cooking of medieval Europe, where hearty root vegetables like carrots were a key part of the diet due to their availability, affordability, and nutritional value. The simplicity and comfort of this dish harken back to those days, yet the addition of garlic powder and butter gives a modern twist. This updated classic proves that sometimes, less is more.

Absolutely! This simple cooking method can be applied to any frozen vegetables you have on hand.

What’s the best way to adjust the seasoning?

If you’re looking for a dairy-free version of this recipe, you can substitute the butter with your favorite plant-based alternatives, such as olive oil or avocado oil. If you don’t have garlic powder, minced fresh garlic is a delicious alternative.
