  • Heat up a skillet to med-high. Pour the oil from the tuna can into the skillet and heat up.
  • Once the oil is heated, add your carrots. Stir fry for approximately 10 minutes or until softened. Add a bit of water here and there to help the carrots cook. You don't want it watery though, so if you add water be sure to let the water burn off.
