Steamed Carrots & herbs

This recipe makes a great side dish. The agave gives the carrots a very subtile sweetness. It can be substituted for almost any vegetable. I also like to use squash with these herbs and oil. It’s quick, easy and healthy.


  • 5 large carrots, sliced on an angle
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp raw agave
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • pinch sea salt


  1. Wash carrots with scrub brush. Keep the skins of the carrots. do not peel. slice on an angle
  2. Steam for approx 25 minutes, or until just tender. Not soft. you don’t want to over cook. Remove from heat, put into medium mixing bowl
  3. Add coconut oil, agave and herbs. Serve immediately when still hot

Yield: 4-6
