  • 800g carrots, halved and cut on the diagonal into 1cm pieces
  • large knob of butter
  • 50g pine nuts
  • 50g sultanas
  • large pinch of sugar
  • small handful parsley, chopped


  1. Put the carrots in a large pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and cook for 6-8 mins until just tender, then drain. Can be done the day before; just chill the carrots until needed.

  2. Melt the butter in the same pan, add the pine nuts and sultanas, and cook for 2 mins until the pine nuts start to lightly brown. Return the carrots to the pan with the sugar, parsley and plenty of seasoning. Toss everything to coat.
