Easy Thai-Inspired Carrots in Lime Peanut Sauce


Easy Thai-Inspired Carrots in Lime Peanut Sauce
This is one of those recipes that came about when I had very little food on hand and didn't feel like making a trip to the store! The result of my bare refrigerator was a simple carrot dish with a Thai peanut sauce. I find it quite filling as a side dish, but you could also pair it with a Thai curry or a whole grain for a full meal.

  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 3 tbsp water or veggie broth + 2 tbsp
  • 1/2 yellow or white onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp Thai peanut sauce or salad dressing
  • 1 tbsp vinegar (white or apple cider)
  • 1 tbsp lime juice (lime is better, but lemon may be substituted)
  • 2 cups chopped or baby carrots
  • sesame seeds (optional)


In a small bowl, mix together the peanut sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, 2 tablespoons of water or broth and lime juice and set aside.

Sautee the onion in 3 tablespoons oil and 3 tablespoons broth or water until slightly soft. Add carrots, cover, and simmer 3-5 minutes. Reduce heat, add the sauce mix, cover and simmer another 5-7 minutes until carrots are soft, stirring frequently.

Add sesame seeds and cook one more minute, if desired. Serve over rice or other grain if desired, and enjoy!
