Easy--Quick--Delicious--Different--Inexpensive! What more can you ask for? My hubby doesn't like anything sweet with his meals, and we're both diabetic, watch our sodium intake (used only half the salt called for), and opt for extra fiber wherever we can. Presentation (color & texture variety) and nutritional value are always a consideration for us as well. The aroma builds anticipation quickly! What a home run this recipe is! I tried to stick to the recipe as best I could, but he and I both are a bit impatient when it comes to measuring. I may have cooked them on a lower heat than some of the other reviewers, because I had several other dishes going at the same time and didn't want to have to watch them all that closely. Using a slightly larger skillet makes it easier too since you can just swirl and toss the pan without having to actually stir it. My garlic cloves were enormous, cut the baby carrots in half or thirds if they were really large. I did add extra water somewhere in the process (not necessarily hot water), and was a little heavier handed with the thyme (compared with the photos posted here.) I will definitely ALWAYS use EVOO for this dish as it cranks up the flavor but doesn't overwhelm. Forgot to sprinkle the parmesan on top at the end as suggested by other posters, but I can't wait to try it next time. Definitely will try adding other vegetables too at some time. BTW, this would be a great dish to teach your kids to make too. Thanks, Chris. These are winners!
