How to serve ranch carrots:
How to make Ranch carrots on stove top:
This recipe is easy to make on the stove top if you prefer.
First, melt the butter on a stove top using medium heat. Then, add the carrots and ranch seasoning.
Sauté and cover. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes until carrots are cooked through. The time can vary based on how tender you prefer the carrots to be.
How to store leftovers:
Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days. I like to go ahead and put them inside individual containers with leftovers from our meal.
This makes it easy to grab for a quick lunch on the way out the door to work. We are less tempted to go out for lunch if I do this easy step.
