We're all used to the fact that carrots get a rather "sad" appearance after heat treatment. But, as it turned out, this happens because of the wrong cooking methods.

The Mirror figured out how to fry carrots so that they don't lose their benefits and look beautiful thanks to expert Rosemary Gill from Milk Street Kitchen.

According to Gill, most people get the carrot cooking process wrong from the very first step. When frying carrots, she advises using two types of fat at once, namely butter and olive oil, mixed in equal proportions. After cooking in two fats, the carrots will become sweeter and get an incredible nutty flavor.

If you want carrots cooked in your kitchen to look and taste like they were made in a restaurant, add a few slices of orange while frying them. The citrus will help bring out all the flavors of the carrots.
