I thought these were a great side dish. I used 1/2 tbsp. of dried dill, since I didn't have fresh. I used a fresh lemon, as the recipe calls for, and I did not find the lemon flavor overpowering as others have. I thought it was just right. Also, I steamed rather than boiled them for 8-10 minutes to retain flavor and nutrients.

I really wanted to like these, since they were so easy, but the lemon flavor was too strong. Won't make again.

I added 2 tsp honey and thought it was even better that way! The dill with the sweet taste was a great flavor combo.

These carrots are soooo delicious! I've finally found a great way to serve carrots. The lemon juice and dill gives them a great tang. I used dried dill weed and frozen crinkle cut carrots and it came out great.

Really good - I usually don't make carrots, but decided to try these. I steamed the carrots (took about 20 mins) and I just added the butter, dried dill weed, and lemon juice until I thought it tasted good. Very easy to make - will make this again.

Great recipe. I used frozen crinkle cut carrots and heated them in the microwave. I used dried dill weed and left out the lemon juice since I didn't have any. The carrots were delicous, even my vegetable picky husband liked them.

Can't go wrong with this recipe. I did think the lemon was a little too strong. Will make again. Thanks for the post.
