Creamy Dilled Carrots Recipe

I'm not sure where my love of cooking comes from, but I speculate it's because I like to eat! This recipe from a treasured cookbook is a wonderfully different way to serve carrots. They do with most any meal and add nice color to the table.—Howard Koch, Lima, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 25 min. + standing YIELD:6-8 servings

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill or 2 tablespoons fresh dill

"I'm cooking for myself, so I prepared this recipe, using just 1 lb. peeled baby carrots, 1-1/2 cups of water, 1 Tbsp. margarine, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 packet Equal sweetener, 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper, 1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup 2% milk used instead of the half and half cream! (I'm trying to streamline those calories!) I did use 2 tsp. dill weed! I did combine the salt, pepper, sweetener, carrots, water and margarine together, covered pan and allowed carrots to cook 20 minutes or until FORK-TENDER! I drained the cooking liquid off and set carrots aside; covered them to stay warm. After combining the flour and milk-stirring until smooth, I added it gradually to cooking liquid, stirring constantly. I then simmered the sauce at least 10 minutes, covered, on low heat, stirring occasionally. I admit that I also had added the dill weed to the sauce when preparing sauce for carrots! I sampled these carrots and they were really quite tasty! Thank you for sharing this recipe with Taste of Home!
