Steamed Baby-Carrot Teething Snacks
Type: Main Dishes
Serve a few of these to your teething toddler to gnaw on (keep an eye on him, of course). You just might get him hooked on carrots!
Serves: Makes about 1 cup
- 1/2 pound baby carrots
- 1 wedge lemon
- Put a steamer basket in a large saucepan with 1" water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the carrots, then squeeze the lemon wedge over the carrots (this will enliven their flavor). Cover and steam for 4 minutes or until the carrots are slightly tender.
- Rinse the carrots under running cold water until cool. Put any leftover carrots in a storage container and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
