Chef Scott is keeping up his promise of showing us restaurant quality meals and as a part of his effort we have this video on Traditional spinach madeline and steamed baby carrots. Both these side dishes just go great with almost all the main dishes that we make at home. While spinach madeline is prepared with a spicy and creamy sauce, steamed baby carrots is the easiest side dish. All it takes is simple steaming, learning it could help you steam many springtime vegetables for a healthy side dish.
