Grilled Whole Carrots With Fresh Nutmeg Recipe
Grilled Whole Carrots With Fresh Nutmeg Recipe

Grilling carrots brings out their natural sweetness. Brush on a sweet-savory glaze that features freshly grated nutmeg, and the flavor pops even more.

Fresh nutmeg is a hard, egg-shaped seed that’s about 1 inch long and grayish-brown in color. Look for it in small packages or jars in the spice aisle. Leaving 1 inch of green stems on the carrots adds a touch of color.

One serving of this grilled whole carrots with fresh nutmeg side dish contains more than a day’s worth of antioxidant vitamin A beta-carotene, which is necessary for boosting immunity and maintaining healthy skin and eyes.

Grilled Whole Carrots With Fresh Nutmeg Recipe Instructions

    1. Peel carrots and trim 1/8-inch off bottom tips. Cut greens off top, leaving 1 inch.

    2. Microwave carrots for 5 minutes, until they’re barely starting to get tender. Preheat grill to medium-high while carrots are cooking in microwave.

    3. Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and grated nutmeg in a small bowl. Place microwaved carrots on a rimmed sheet pan and brush lightly with glaze.

    5. Garnish with minced Italian parsley and freshly grated nutmeg. Serve immediately.
