Carrot Flowers, Peas & Corn (Fields of Green, Gold and Orange)
The stars of the Thanksgiving meal are the main dish (turkey or a vegetarian meal) so keep one of the vegetables a simple dish that is familiar to your kids. Add a little whimsy to this happy veggie medley or, if you prefer, just serve the carrot “flowers” if you have a carrot-lover in your house. Carrots also yummy served raw.
Kids can help: Wash and peel carrots, using a kid-friendly peeler.
What you need:
2 medium carrots
1 Pkg. frozen peas
1 Pkg. frozen corn
Seasoning to taste
Wash and peel carrots. Slice into rounds and then make about 5 small “V” cuts into the edge of each slice. Put peas, corn and carrots into a stovetop pan, add 1 cup water. Bring to boil then reduce heat and cook on medium for approximately 3 minutes or until desired tenderness.
Helpful note: For another fun twist- replace corn with baby corn. Drizzle the vegetable medley with a herbed butter.
