I got my carrots all cleaned up -- peeled and chopped -- and put them in lightly salted boiling water for about 5 minutes before draining them.
Next up I sauteed a little bit of chopped onion in olive oil until the onion was nice and soft. In went the carrots and black pepper as well as a little bit of hot water. I let this simmer, covered, for five minutes, before adding some red wine vinegar and, once that was bubbling, a little bit of sugar. I stirred everything together thoroughly and then served with a little bit of parsley scattered on top.
So, this is still cooked carrots, but the flavors are good.
The best part of the recipe is that I had all the ingredients, so it was totally free.
That, and that we ate it along with amazing beef and chorizo tacos (not Mediterranean) based loosely on this recipe, but really mostly just based on what was available in my fridge.
So totally delicious. Hello, spicy chorizo love.
