It’s amazing how a little saffron and garlic can transform ordinary carrots into something sublime.


Peel 3 pounds carrots and slice into thin coins. Cook in 2 tablespoons butter with a little crumbled saffron and a couple chopped garlic cloves. Season well with salt and pepper and a scant teaspoon of freshly grated lemon zest. Add a cup of water and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes, or until the carrots are tender.
