The recipe says to cook for 8-12 minutes. Then it says to put the carrots back in the skillet. It never says to take them out. Are you suppose to drain them and then add them back?

Hi Peter,
You are correct! You will remove the carrots and strain them before putting them into the skillet. Thank you for noticing our error, we have changed it now 🙂
