I love finding new recipes for basic everyday veggies.....not only are basic veggies budget friendly, but they are kid friendly too.
I will often grab the GIANT bag of organic baby carrots from Costco and some weeks its a marathon to get through them.
Here is a simple and delicious way to jazz up everyday carrots. It only takes a few minutes to prepare and it is a nice spin on plain ol' carrots.
I will often serve these carrots if I am doing and indian flavoured dish (butter chicken) or something with a strong curry flavour.
Ginger Glazed Carrots
1 pound of carrots - cut into sticks (or use the baby carrots)
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Tsp ground ginger
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp OJ
Cook carrots in boiling water for two minutes, meanwhile, cream butter, sugar and ginger - cook until melted and bubbly. Add carrots and stir well to coat. Saute for two minutes, add soy sauce and OJ and cook for 1-2 minutes over high heat until mixture is almost gone.
