Prep Time: 15 min   Total Time: 15 min

Ingredients:

1 Carrot, peeled, sliced 1-inch thick, 3 are needed per plate
Vegetable oil

Instruction:

Place a slice on a cutting board with largest cut end facing up. Use a sharp paring knife to make an X cutting down vertically about two-thirds of the way, do not cut completely through. You should have 4 divisions.

Carve each division into rounded petals; cut out centers to resemble a flower. Slice a small amount off the bottom at a slight angle so that they will sit on the plate at an angle. Repeat this process until all are carved.

Put in boiling salted water until they are soft but still firm; plunge into an ice bath to stop the cooking; drain, towel dry and coat with a small amount of oil to make them look good.
Garnish with parsley or rosemary and serve with a main entree or salads or a sandwich.

Wine recommendation: Pinot Gris; Chardonnay
