Carrots and Mushrooms

Updated on December 11, 2014

Carrots and Mushrooms

This is a great side dish that we love with our Thanksgiving meal. But, you don't have to wait for Thanksgiving to make it. It's delicious with any meal of roast chicken, pork or roast beef. It's colorful and even the children like it. It's made with all fresh vegetables so it's also very nutritious.

My sister showed me how to make this about 20 years ago and it's been part of my menu ever since. I love recipes that someone makes themselves and shows you how to make it; they are unique. These may be common, everyday vegetables but put them together and they pop and make a wonderful side dish.

I also put the leftovers in a pot pie I make with the left over turkey. Hope you try carrots and mushrooms in this recipe. I'm sure you'll love it too.


I have tried this dish with canned and frozen carrots to save time, but it just didn't taste the same. There is something about fresh carrots that brings out the sweetness in the dish.

The same thing goes with the mushrooms. You can, however, buy the fresh mushrooms already sliced.

      Thank you everyone for your comments. I'm glad it sounded so good to you. I was thinking, maybe it was a little simple, but sometimes the simple dishes are the best.

      Blessings to all of you, Susan Zatautas, Lady Guinevere and peachpurple. By the way, I love your names.

      That does sound delicious. I have made Muscrooms and Onions as a side dish, but never thought about carrots and mushrooms. I will have to try this. Thanks for sharing!
