No time? No Problem! This hack is perfect for baby/kids meals. What you will need:
- Paring Knife
- Microwave Steamer (and water)
- 3 Minutes
Wash carrots – Don’t peel them. Cut in half or into 3 pieces (depending on size) – DON’T HALVE THE CARROT – keep it round. Put water in bottom of steamer, place carrots in steam basket and put lid on. Cook in microwave for 3 min.
Now for the fun part… Take your paring knife and make a cut lengthwise down the carrot. Peel the outer layer off and voila!
The 3-minute steamed carrot hack. See my YouTube Video.
Where do I find a microwave steamer? You don’t have to spend a lot ($), we picked ours up in Chinatown downtown Toronto, just google ‘microwave steamer’ and lots will pop up. It has to have a bottom basin for water, a steaming tray and lid. That’s it.
