VEGAN CAROTTES ÉTUVÉES AU BEURRE

[Carrots Braised in Butter]

This is a really simple and delicious dish...

...Julia calls for peeled, sliced carrots - but I cheated and opened a bag of baby carrots...

...all you do is bring the carrots to the boil with water...

...Earth Balance...

...and sugar..."to develop their flavor" - Julia says...

...and a little bit of salt...

...and some pepper - which I was skeptical about as I usually don't pepper my carrots...

...boil slowly for 30-40 minutes...

...until the liquid is all evaporated...

...in my pretty little Philbe dish...

...it turned out that the little bit of pepper was OK...

...they were delicious served with the 'liver'...

Substitutions:
only Earth Balance for the Butter
