Champagne Dill Carrots Recipe For A Sparkling Side Dish


Champagne dill carrots add a special flair to any main dish. There is something magical about the combination of carrots and dill, and this is a great way to use up leftover champagne from a party. Better yet, make this side dish to serve at that champagne party occasion, and dip into the bottle before your guests arrive. 😉

Leftover champagne? I hear you laughing! Single-serve bottles (called “splits”) are available at most liquor stores. Sweet white wine, sparkling white grape juice or sparkling apple juice may be substituted for the champagne.

Champagne Dill Carrots Recipe

2 Tablespoons butter
1 pound carrots, peeled and thinly sliced into coin shapes
1/4 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup champagne
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons fresh dill weed, chopped or 3/4 teaspoon dried

In a heavy saucepan, saute the carrots in the butter over medium heat until they begin to brown. Add the chicken stock, champagne, honey, and salt. Stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook over low heat until al dente (tender to the bite but not mushy soft), about 5 minutes.

Remove cover and cook until liquid has almost evaporated. Add lemon juice and dill weed and gently stir to combine.
Serve hot.

Yield: 4 servings
