Carrots were on sale in my area for 33 cents a pound. In addition, I grew some carrots in my garden. I have been looking for ways to prepare them. This recipe is different, healthy and delicious. You could easily halve or double it.
I got the Pampered Chef micro cooker pictured in a thrift store. It is terrific for steaming and draining.
