  • A Pot
  • A Steamer Basket Insert
  • A 13x9 Baking Dish



  • Preheat oven to 375 Fahrenheit.
  • Steam the carrots: Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, add a steam insert, and steam the carrots for 6-7 minutes or until softened.  You can also pressure cook them for 2 minutes, and quick release the pressure.
  • Reserve 1 cup of the carrot cooking liquid, and drain the rest.
  • Transfer carrots to a large 13x9 baking dish.
  • Mix the mayo, minced garlic, garlic powder, onion powder, herbs de Provence, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.  Add 1/2 cup of reserved cooking liquid to thin (if you need the sauce thinner, add 2 tablespoons of water at a time until desired consistency is reached).  Pour over carrots.
  • In that same bowl, combine melted butter and crushed cracker crumbs. Spread evenly over the top of the carrots.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbling at the edges. Serve and enjoy!
