Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Cut carrots in half lengthwise and put them in steamer basket.
  2. Cover and steam until they are tender but still yield a little crunch (test by inserting a knife in the center of the thickest carrot). It should take 15-25 minutes depending on the size of the carrots.
  3. Take carrots out of the basket and let them cool to room temperature.
  4. Place carrots on a cutting board and cut all 4 sides to create flat surfaces like a rectangle box.
  5. Add carrots to a pan over high heat and cook each side until they are blackened.
  6. Take carrots out of the pan and let cool to room temperature.
  7. Place carrots on a cutting board and without cutting all the way through, cut crosswise into thin slices.
  8. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil on top and sprinkle coarse sea salt, black pepper and scallions. Serve.
