We’ve been eating a ton of these asian quick pickled carrots lately. I made them on a whim when I had an overabundance of carrots, and we started throwing them in quinoa bowls, on top of pork meatballs, in rice-paper wraps, and lately on Korean-style beef tacos.

I can’t see the ingredients list because there is a video on top of it. I would really love to make these carrots to go over bibimbap, but there doesn’t seem to be anyway to get rid of the video. Every area I touch on that video just takes me to a larger screen of the video. I have re-entered this site probably 10 times and it is always there.
