When it comes to carrots, I either eat them raw or glazed with brown sugar and mustard. Stir Fried Carrots w/ Ginger and Mustard from Madhur Jaffrey was a unique recipe, lacking the sweetness I'm used to when it comes to carrots but having plenty of heat from ginger and cayenne.
Shredding a pound of carrots was trying. Especially since earlier in the day, the attachment for my food processor's shredding blade cracked and fell apart. I found myself hoping we wouldn't like this stir fry so I'd never have to shred carrots again.
I'll have to see about replacing that food processor.
We all thought this was very good. Especially The Husband. But especially me. And since I'm the one who shreds the carrots....
I liked everything about this dish. The gingery peppery heat. The tangy lime. And even how the shredded carrots provided a different texture.
It's "Root, Root, Root for Root Vegetables" at I Heart Cooking Clubs.

This root vegetable dish was a home run.
