We love to sous vide carrots because the constant water temperature transforms these standard grocery store vegetables into tender, sweet morsels with just a hint of crunch. A quick broil at the end of cooking caramelizes the sugars, adding additional browning and flavor. We like to serve our herby carrots on top of a little cooling yogurt for textural and flavor contrast, but you can omit it if you like.
Herby Sous Vide Carrots
- 1 lb carrots, scrubbed, halved, and cut into 2″ lengths
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 sprig rosemary
- 1 tbsp minced fresh parsley or dill
- 1/2 cup yogurt, optional
1) Place carrots, olive oil, sugar, thyme, ½ tsp kosher salt, and ¼ tsp ground black pepper in a vacuum bag. Vacuum seal and place in a Suvie pan. Fill pan with water to cover and insert pan into the top right zone of your Suvie. Fill reservoir, input settings, and cook now or schedule.

2) After the cook, remove the pan from your Suvie and pour off water. Dry pan and empty carrots and liquid into the pan, discarding rosemary sprigs. Return pan to your Suvie and broil 10 minutes until fragrant.
3) Spread yogurt on a serving platter if using. Arrange carrots on top of the yogurt. Sprinkle carrots with herbs just before serving.
