The anti-cancer properties of carrots are more potent if the vegetable is not cut up before cooking, research shows. Scientists found "boiled before cut" carrots contained 25% more of the anti-cancer compound falcarinol than those chopped up first.
6 medium sized carrots
1/2 Tbspn of natural organic honey
1/2 tspn of natural rock salt
1 tspn of ground cardomon
Small sprig of fesh thyme (or 1/2 a teaspoon of dried ground thyme)
1/2 tspn of black pepper
1 Tbspn Virgin Olive Oil
In a shallow pan (fry pan is best) place carrots and all other ingredients. Fill pan with water so it is just covering carrots. Simmer untill carrots are just tender - approx 20 to 25 mins depending on the size of the carrots.
Remove carrots from liquid and keep warm. Bring liquid to boil then simmer at medium-high temperature untill liquid reduces and thickens. Check seasoning and spoon liquid/sauce over carrots and serve.
