Number of Servings: 2


    2 carrots
    sesame seeds
    sesame oil

Cut the carrots into matchstick size. (Cheat alert - you can use pre-shredded carrots meant for salad if you like, but then lessen the cooking time.)

Heat up a frying pan or wok with the sesame oil. Add the carrots and toss around until crisp-tender, about 4 to 5 minutes depending on how skinny the matchsticks are. Add the red pepper flakes and toss some more. Add soy sauce, toss toss. Add the sesame seeds near the end.

    I love making this my husband and kids also eat it up! I use the precut carrots myself, a real time savor. I like it when the carrots get a tad crispy on the ends, gives it a great flavor! I make one batch spicy and one batch less spicy for the kids, everyone is happy! - 3/17/10
