Balsamic vinegar may seem like a grown-up ingredient, but its smooth, candied flavour is perfect for little palates.
1 500-g bag baby carrots
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Partially fill a large saucepan with water. Bring to a boil. Add carrots and cover. Boil gently over medium heat until fork-tender, 10 to 15 min. Drain well in a colander. Return saucepan to heat. Add butter, stirring until melted. Add carrots, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir until evenly coated, 1 to 2 min.
