The easiest, simplest, and fastest Microwave Carrots ever are also some of the tastiest steamed carrots you'll ever enjoy! With only a splash of water and a few minutes of cooking time, this has to be the best way to get a veggie side dish on the table in no time at all!
4mediumcarrots(washed and or peeled, chopped into ½ inch rounds)
each, salt & pepper(to taste)
Wash and or peel your carrots, then chop into rounds that are approximately ½ inch in thickness.
Place the chopped carrots into a microwave-safe dish and add the water. Cover with a fitted lid or a plate that will seal the dish.
Cook on high for 3 minutes and check your carrots. Heat in additional 1 minute increments until the carrots have reached your desired level of tenderness. *My family likes very tender carrots, 5 minutes is the usual!Be very careful of steam when removing the carrots from the microwave, or opening your dish!
Let the cooked carrots sit for about one minute, drain off any excess water, then toss with butter, and season with salt and pepper.
