  • Soy sauce: 4 tablespoons
  • Sweet paprika powder: 1 teaspoon

Step 1: Cook the Carrots

Slice the carrots into semi-circles. Bring salted water to a boil in a saucepan and add the carrots. Cook until tender.

Step 2: Sauté the Onion

Meanwhile, finely chop the onion and sauté it in a pan. Set aside.

Step 3: Sauté the Carrots with Butter

Once the carrots are cooked, drain them (keep the water!), then add butter to the saucepan and sauté, stirring to melt the butter and coat the carrots.
