"I just think carrots, particularly their tops and roots, are an artistic wonder," Richard Blais says. "The color, the abstract shape—they're gorgeous." He cooks them in a tangy ginger sauce and then sprinkles them with the flavorful, seaweed-and-sesame-seed-based Japanese seasoning called furikake.

  1. 24 baby carrots, tops trimmed to 2 inches
  2. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1/2 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  4. Pinch of cinnamon
  5. 1/2 cup chicken stock
  6. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  7. 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  8. 1/4 teaspoon Sriracha
  9. Salt
  10. 1 tablespoon furikake (see Note)
  1. In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the carrots until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain the carrots.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the carrots, ginger and cinnamon and cook over moderate heat, tossing occasionally, until the ginger is fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the chicken stock and boil over moderately high heat until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and let cool for 30 seconds. Swirl in the butter, lime juice and Sriracha and season with salt. Arrange the carrots on a platter and spoon the ginger-lime sauce on top. Sprinkle with the furikake and serve.
Notes Furikake is available at Asian markets and many specialty food stores.
