Prep Time: 10 min    Total Time: 10 min

Ingredients:

1 large, fat carrot, peeled (the largest carrot you can find)
16 to 32 Small fresh green beans or you can also use:
16 to 32 fresh asparagus, pencil size
Kosher Salt and pepper, to taste
3 tablespoons butter, melted

Instructions:

Cut notches around the carrot lengthwise with a sharp knife; slice crosswise into about 1-inch rounds. Ream out the center of each carrot round, being careful not to break the ring (if it breaks, don't worry they are still useable, when serving just place them seam side down on the plate, no one will notice).

If using green beans leave them whole, cut stem ends off at an angle. If using pencil sized asparagus, cut them 4 inches long, stem ends cut at an angle.

Thread beans (or asparagus) through the carrot ring (usually 2 to 4 beans or asparagus will fit into a ring). Steam them until tender crisp. Carefully and gently remove them from the steamer and toss with salt, pepper and butter. Serve one on each plate with the main entree
