A friend made this as a side dish for our pot luck Christmas dinner ... YUM! She used pecans instead of hazelnuts and thinly sliced onion. Definitely a keeper.
I really liked the concept behind this recipe, but the flavor just wasn't there. These carrots were way too sweet, and the glaze would have covered at least 2 pounds of carrots. I would have to tweak this recipe to make it something I would cook again because of the sweetness.
Yum! Cooked carrots never tasted so good. I doubled the recipe but used less butter than called for. I cooked the sauce for a good 20 minutes to try and thicken but it didn't seem to...? Didn't matter though, 100% delicious flavor. My mother didn't even want to try but I insisted... she asked for the recipe and said she doesn't like carrots but really liked these and knows she should eat them! I will keep this recipe for sure. Thanks!
Used carrots chopped into medallions. Also used vegan margarine instead of butter. Oh, and used pecans instead of hazelnuts (as mentioned by another reviewer) as I couldn't find hazelnuts at the store (didn't look terribly hard though). As a few have mentioned, the marsala mix wasn't really a glaze as much as a sauce. Still very good!
LOVE THIS! I made it for Thanksgiving dinner, and it was a big hit. I was skeptical while I was cooking the sauce, but once I tasted it, I knew I had a winner. I used sliced almonds instead of hazelnuts. Delicious, will DEFINITELY make again.
This is an excellent, easy recipe. In halving the recipe for two, one shallot was a bit much. I might even reduce to 1/2 a shallot when splitting the recipe. Overall though, just yummy. Might even be good with fresh, frenched green beans - not overly cooked.
I loved this! Best carrot recipe I've ever had. I substituted splenda for the sugar. I didn't measure the water either..just covered the carrots with water since they were going to be drained anyway.
This was delish! I didn't have hazelnuts but will get them for next time because I love them, but pecans worked well. I also didn't have shallots so I used vidalia onion with a touch of garlic minced together and that worked out fine. Didn't have unsalted, so I used salted butter. There is a lot of sauce and I though about cutting back on those ingredients next time, but it coats the carrots well this way. All those little chunks soaking up that heavenly sauce. In any case, no complaints, I will be making this alot!
Oh yeah.. This says it serves 6. I think that's being conservative, realistically it's more like 4 servings. DH and I ate at LEAST half of this,
(1 regular serving each)in one sitting. Total Yumfort Food!
