Melt-in-Your Mouth Carrots


  • 1 carrot
  • 1 small parsnip or turnip
  • 6" strip kombu
  • water
  • Tamari soy sauce
  • Place kombu in 1/4" water in a small skillet. Let it soak and soften
  • Cut carrot in diagonal slices
  • Lay each slice flat, and cut into 3 or 4 lengh wise strips
  • Slice parsnip or turnip similarly
  • Place roots on top of kombu
  • Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer 25 minutes
  • When done, the water should be mostly absorbed.
  • Remove kombu
(Parsnip- it looks like a white carrot)

Once they were done, I ate the carrots and parsnips over quinoa and spinach and added a 1/2 tsp Tamari sauce.
