On our menu: sausages on a bun, raw greenhouse peppers and tomatoes, and a side of scalloped carrots. Yes, scalloped carrots. I recently started following yet another great Ontario blog called 'The Seasonal Family' - see http://www.seasonalfamily.com/ . All of the recipes I've seen so far are great and I hope to try many of them. On this day, I tried their recipe for scalloped carrots.
Here is my recipe (adapted from theirs):
- 4 carrots
- 3 tbsp butter
- 1 1/2 tbsp flour
- 1 cup skim milk
- salt, pepper
- 1/2 cup shredded tomato basil harvarti
- 1/4 cup shredded mild cheddar
In a pan, melt the butter and then add the flour, whisking until well-combined. Add the milk and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the harvarti and whisk until melted. Once melted, spread it over the carrots and then sprinkle the remaining cheese. Bake at 375 for 35-45 minutes.
The dish was delicious. It was so nice to have a new recipe using carrots. I am so tired of eating root vegetables. I'm looking very forward to eating some asparagus, green beans and broccoli. Mmmm....broccoli!
