Carrots in Creamy Dill Sauce

Carrots in Creamy Dill Sauce makes such a wonderful holiday side dish. I love this delightful recipe! I enjoy eating carrots, but I really prefer them cooked in casseroles or served with delicious sauces like Honey Glazed Carrots or Basil Carrots rather than raw–unless they have hummus gobbed all over them!

This tasty carrot recipe is made with a delicious cream sauce thats spiked with salt, white pepper and dill weed. That’s it! And yet, even though it is so simple to make it tasted quite wonderful. I’ve also made a vegan version of this recipe which also turned out quite well. I used gluten free flour to make the cream sauce, but if you’re not gluten intolerant you can use regular wheat flour.

I was making a large meal for my neighbor across the street a couple of weeks ago who is getting ready to move and this recipe was on the menu. I actually made four batches of these carrots, so with other food I’m sure it served closer to the 25 I was cooking for, rather than the 16 which was equivalent to four batches times four servings. They loved all the goodies I brought over including this quick, easy, and fairly economical side dish.

Here’s what I did.

Boil carrots until fork tender. I was making four batches of this recipe so it took about 30 minutes for the carrots to cook until tender.

While carrots are cooking, prepare sauce: Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. I used gluten free flour, but you can use all-purpose flour if you don’t have gluten sensitivities. Add flour to melted butter and whisk to combine.

Add half-and-half cream (or milk) slowly–about a quarter cup at a time and whisk incorporating each addition until all the half-and-half or milk is used up.

It’s thick. I LOVED the creamy texture of this sauce. Making it with half-and-half versus milk made a huge difference.
