Buttery Steamed Carrots

I like trying new things, and recently bought a special hand-shredder that makes chocolate and vegetable curls. My little shredder gives grated carrots a new and interesting look - particularly with this recipe. I’ve cooked carrots this way for many years, but grating them in long, loopy curls seems more fun than the usual, short grate. This is a delicious, quick, and very simple way to prepare them. 
Buttery Steamed Carrots:
5-to-6 large carrots, shredded
1-½ tbsp. butter or margarine
1 tbsp. ginger slivers (optional)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Melt butter on low heat in small saucepan with tight-fitting lid. Add carrots, seasoning to taste. Cook, covered, 5-to-7 min.

This simple grater works lickety-split - as fast as
a vegetable peeler. It cost about $12 in a kitchen store

These long shreds go into a covered pot with melted butter
