What an unusual (and tasty!) alternative to my dull way to prepare carrots! I would've given this recipe 5-stars, if not for the over-bearing cinnamon taste that put-off both my husband and 3-year old, so next time, I will scale it back to 1/4, if not, 1/8 tsp. The only thing that I changed was using way less than the 5 TB olive oil called for. Overall a very exotic and yummy way to prepare carrots! I served it w/ 2 recipes from here -- "Brilliant Sauteed Broccoli" & "Roasted Pork Chops with Mushrooms, Tomatoes, and Garlic Sauce" and the result was a vibrant, colorful plate of complimentary flavors.
this was not to our tastes at all. But I didn't steam them as directed, I steamed/baked them in the oven with all the ingredients and a bit of water (for steam). the lemon taste didn't seem right at all...
Great flavors and fresh twist on the traditional steamed carrots. It was very important to maintain a crisp-tender texture in the steamer to avoid mushy carrots after sauteeing with spices.
These are possibly the best carrots I've ever eaten. Didn't use lemon juice because I didn't think they needed it. Such a welcome change from the old butter/dill or brown sugared carrots. These were an excellent side to our spicy curried chicken.
I'm always looking for creative ways to cook carrots, and this is perfect! I admit I was skeptical at the cooking instructions and combination of spices... but it works! Delicious! I did not saute the garlic as long as the recipe suggested, though.
This is my new favorite way to prepare carrots. I could eat a pound of carrots this way, I loved them that much! I used carrots and sliced them into sticks, rather than using baby carrots. Awesome!
I didn't really follow the measurements exactly because I made the dish for 20+ but the spice and herb combination tasted great together. I suggest tasting as you saute to make sure the combination is just right
Delicious! Made it following the directions and they came out beautifully.
