I have suddenly become frugal. I don't know when this happened, but it did and I am glad! I am finally no longer wasting food and am stretching my cooking skills to use what I have on hand at the moment. I not only save money, but I get to create something new and sometimes it's yummy!
The other day Joey brought home a seasoned pork tenderloin from Costco. They are so yummy, so if you see them on sale and eat pork, pick one up! Anyway, I wanted to make something to go with it and found that I had carrots and an onion. Well, that should be easy. This recipe is really just a spur of the moment thing, but it's so good and worked so well I have to share it. Feel free to totally improvise on this one. I did!
- 3 cups coarsely chopped carrots
- 1 small to medium onion
- Olive Oil
- Fresh or dry parsley
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Chop carrots and onions
- Heat a skillet over medium heat
- Add two or three swirls of olive oil
- Add onions and saute for 2 - 3 minutes
- Add carrots and saute for about a minute
- Cover tightly and cook until tender, about 6 - 8 minutes
- Add parsley, salt and pepper to taste
- Serve to your teddy bear and watch him smile
My friend Carla taught me to make this with fresh parsley and if you have it use it. If you need to use dry, it works just fine. You could also use fresh or dry dill and that would also be yummy. In face, this is a great recipe to use up just about any herb you have left over. Just remember that something like rosemary should be steamed along with the carrots and onions.
