Ribbon carrots stir fry

Ribbon carrots stir fry

Carrots is one of my top favourite vegetables. It’s such a delicious and healthy vegetable. I eat it very often, either in freshly made carrot juice with apples or in stir fry and soups.

Carrots are sweet and high in vitamins and minerals and they make great juices. My best is still carrot and apple juice. Carrot juice is widely used in natural healing for diseases like cancer. My whole family has benefitted greatly from it. You can read more about it by clicking on the links below.

Ribbon Carrot Stir Fry is a new dish that I tried recently. I love the look and the taste. I actually had fun peeling them into ribbons. Cooking it was simple and easy. Carrots have a lovely natural sweetness of its own so simple seasoning like a little sea salt is good enough.

Here is my Ribbon Carrots Stir Fry recipe….simple, colourful, healthy and delicious.

carrots (peeled)
fried garlic oil
sea salt

Ribbon-like carrot strips

Wash the carrot clean. Use a peeler, peel the carrot along its length into ribbons. Be careful not to peel your fingers. I almost did that.

Heat up some fried garlic oil in a frying pan or wok. Add the carrots and a little water to it. Cover and cook for a couple of minutes, depending on how soft you want the carrots to be. I love it with still some crunch to it. Add a tablespoon of butter, some sea salt and chopped coriander to it and mix well. Dish up and serve hot. It’s so delicious I can even eat a big plate on its own.

What a great way to cook carrots! Lovely and delicious too. Looks like fried broad bean noodles at a glance!

Von  on October 18th, 2010

This is such a good idea! I love carrots, but I’ve never thought of just cooking carrots like this! I’ll have to try this one some day…..
although I’d have a hard time trying not to cut off my fingers =S

zurin  on October 18th, 2010

I love ribboning carrots too. such a pretty dish!

Joanne  on October 18th, 2010

I always have carrots on hand but never really know what to do with them. What a great recipe!

Sanjeeta kk  on October 18th, 2010

Lovely way to add carrots in kids’ menu.

The Little Teochew  on October 18th, 2010

Brilliant! And they look like fettucine! I love what you have done, Mary.

busygran  on October 18th, 2010

Mary, I love the new carrot look! Never thought of cooking them in ribbons! What a novel idea!

the lacquer spoon  on October 18th, 2010

This is an awesome carrot pasta, delish!

Jeannie  on October 18th, 2010

Looks good! Love the way you strip your carrots:D

Aipi  on October 18th, 2010

They look just like like pasta..beautifully done Mary!

US Masala

Shirley@kokken69  on October 18th, 2010

Unlike you, I am not a big fan of carrots. However, I think it is brilliant of you to prepare carrots this way.

lena  on October 18th, 2010

i think the only way for me to obtain the nutrients from carrots is by juicing..now you have given me an new idea with this healthy and simple dish!

Lavanya  on October 18th, 2010

Delicious and yummmm….Looks simple and easy to make too :)



Lyndsey  on October 18th, 2010

Mary this looks so good, I love how you cut the carrots. My daughter would like this. I’ve used zucchini like that but had fettuccine with it. Your recipe is certainly worth trying!

Sarah Naveen  on October 18th, 2010

Healthy and yummy!!!! loved it…

peteformation  on October 18th, 2010

Just like Char Kueh Teow with lots of chilly….ha ha ha!

food-4tots  on October 18th, 2010

It’s one of my son’s favourite veggie. Will definitely try it out one day. The ribbon carrots look like kuey teow. So beautiful and appealing! ;)

Swathi  on October 18th, 2010

Looks delicious I love the way you grated.

Reeni  on October 18th, 2010

This is so creative Mary! I love carrots and am always looking for new ways to cook them. I bet this is delicious!

Arnold  on October 18th, 2010

I like the idea behind this. One could actually twirl the carrots around a fork much as you would spaghetti. This really looks great.

anncoo  on October 18th, 2010

From the first picture I thought is a carrot noodles :) Looks so delicious and healthy.

lequan  on October 18th, 2010

Oh Mary, I absolutely LOVE this dish! You are a genius! This is definitely a fun, healthy, creative, and enticing dish. If I had a fork right now I’d want to dig into the dish I’m viewing on my phone right now. Such a fun dish for my kiddies too. I’m sure smiling big right now :-D. I really should cook with carrots more, but I’m ashamed to say I don’t. I love carrots anything, especially a nice tall refreshing sweet glass of carrot juice, but I have to admit I dislike carrot cake. I don’t know why though. Thank you for sharing another wonderful recipe.

Ananda Rajashekar  on October 18th, 2010

*kisses* HH

Yummy Team  on October 18th, 2010

I should try it again to make it more fun for kids :D Need more creative juices to flow first…haha. Oh, wonder why you don’t like carrot cake. Is it because of the cinnamon smell? I love carrot cake if there’s no cinnamon. With orange cream cheese frosting, it’s really the best. I can even eat that for lunch :D

Biren @ Roti n Rice  on October 18th, 2010

Your carrot ribbon stir-fry look so lovely. I like how you peel them into ribbons. From far it looks almost like pasta.

BTW I have an award waiting for you at my blog. Do come soon to check it out :)

tigerfish  on October 18th, 2010

I wanted to do zucchini ribbons this morning, but then gave up the idea. Love your carrot ribbons :) ..I think the carrots cook faster this way too.

Olive  on October 18th, 2010

you sliced it perfectly that it looks like pasta..I hope to try this one day, maybe I can make my daughter-who loves pasta- like carrots more :)

Juliana  on October 18th, 2010

Mary, love the simplicity of this dish…very cute the ribbons.

Lazaro  on October 18th, 2010

I share your love of carrots. Slicing the veg into ribbons is a smart and sexy way to serve them. Works well with zucchini too. Lovely dish.

Cheah  on October 18th, 2010

Wow, you are a genius! Those ribbon carrots look like orange kway teow from afar!

TasteHongKong  on October 19th, 2010

Always love your easy, healthy approach of cooking dishes. I sometimes stir-fry cloud ear shreds with carrots.

Mary  on October 19th, 2010

@Biren @ Roti n Rice - Thanks very much, Biren, for the lovely award. That’s so sweet of you. Really appreciate very much :D I have added it to my side bar.

@tigerfish - I would love to try zucchini ribbons, too. Would be so fun :D

@Olive - You are very right. We always need to come up with something different and interesting hopefully to get our kids eat more vegetables :D Hope it works in your case. My children like it.

@Juliana - Thanks very much, Juliana! :D

@Lazaro - I have to try with zucchini….yeah…zucchini ribbons! :D

@Cheah - Haha…carrot kway teow…love that! :D

@TasteHongKong - Ooooh, the colour combination of cloud ears and carrots would be beautiful :D I’m sure it tastes very delicious, too.

My way is to use carrot in soup boiling, and to add it in mix veggies stir-fry.
