Hot carrot shreds

Side Serves 4 10 min
This easy, quick recipe softens carrots but doesn't mask their flavour. It's mild – but you could add a little cumin, paprika and/or harissa for a more spicy, North African effect. Try sprinkled with feta and torn mint before serving.


  • 25g butter
  • 350g carrots, peeled and coarsely grated
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 5 min
  • Step 1

    Melt the butter and add the carrots and a little salt and pepper. Stir to coat evenly, then cook gently for about 5 minutes half-covered, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are tender. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and serve.
