2–3 cm root ginger
1 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley
500 g carrots

Peel and chop the ginger. Rinse the parsley, pat dry and chop finely. Peel the carrots, clean, cut into even slices and fry in a pan with hot butter. Then deglaze the pan with the sherry, pour in the vegetable stock, add the ginger and cook over a medium heat for about 20 minutes.
