Q:

How long does it take to boil carrots?

A:

It takes about 10 minutes to cook carrots in a saucepan of cold water until the carrots are tender. If, however, the pieces are smaller than an average baby carrot, the time may be less.

Boiled or steamed with a little butter and salt, carrots are a quick and easy side dish for a weekday meal. They are an excellent source of vitamin A and beta-carotene and are easily added to a variety of sauces and stews to increase the meal's overall nutrition without sacrificing taste. Shredded carrots can even be added to quick breads to increase their sweetness naturally without a loss of texture.
