Cooked carrots are an often overlooked choice for a vegetable side. A little lemon, salt, pepper, and thyme are all you need for this nutritious dish.

How to Make It

Combine carrots and lemon slices in small saucepan; fill with water just to cover. Bring to a boil; simmer 20 minutes. Drain; discard lemon. Season with salt, pepper, and thyme.
