3-Minute Steamed Carrot Hack


No time?  No Problem!  This hack is perfect for baby/kids meals.  What you will need:

  1. Carrots
  2. Paring Knife
  3. Microwave Steamer (and water)
  4. 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.
