White Wine Braised Carrots

White Wine Braised CarrotsWhite Wine Braised Carrots.

I love carrots. Always have. Whether they’re raw (dipped in ranch, cause RANCH), sauteed, braised or baked in the form of CARROT CAKE. What? There’s carrots in that cake, hence the name. I happen to also love it when a dish requires little to no dishes. Dishes are a thorn in my side and something I do a lot of, job hazard. Doesn’t mean I have to like it.

These white wine braised carrots are baked in a tinfoil pouch. IF you seal it like a champ it won’t even leak onto the rimmed baking sheet so you’ll have ZERO dishes. I can’t properly  tell you how giddy tinfoil pouch cooking makes me. I can tell you I will do a little kitchen cooking dance when it happens though. 


White Wine Braised Carrots

I actually went through a tinfoil cooking phase where I tried to cook everything in tinfoil pouches. It was glorious while it lasted. IF I was a camper (my friends and family are on the floor laughing at that one) I’d be an excellent campfire cook. I did a get a little burned out on it because you can only cook so many things in tinfoil pouches, and after eating a few recipes multiples times over a few weeks a girl just wants a steak or baked macaroni and cheese.

But now they’re back in my cooking repertoire and hopefully yours too!

White Wine Braised Carrots

These are so simple but make a great accompaniment to most meat-centric meals (hello Easter HAM or LAMB?) It takes about 5 minutes to prepare. Most of that is folding the tinfoil into a pouch.

Once everything is sealed up tightly, into the oven it goes to braise away. It comes out steaming with a gorgeous white wine butter sauce that’s peppered with cumin and thyme. It’s pretty divine.

Know what else is? That Ambrosia Maple cutting board in the photos. It’s handmade in ‘Merica by The Timbered Wolf. I use it just about everyday for chopping and serving, and if you follow me on Instagram (you do don’t you, please say we’re insta frands)  you know it makes many appearances in my photos/stories. It’s obvious I’m quite fond of my one of a kind, unique boards.

    I would like to leave it out on the counter, because it is so pretty. When I cook big for holidays I would like to set up cutting/peeling stations for helpers who wander in and say, “What can I do?”
