    French Tart's Note:

    One of the most requested vegetable accompaniments that I serve in the Auberge; simple & easy to adapt to personal tastes - they are finished off in a flash before serving. If you are not fond of garlic, don't add it......the same with basil, it's just that I find the two work very well together with the sweetnes of the carrots!

      What a great way to serve carrots! Delcious and so creamy, the garlic and basil add such wonderful flavours to the carrots. Next time I would like to use fresh basil, it was late so I didn't go out to pick any in the dark, I used dried basil instead. The family loved the carrots and I will be trying this one again with some lovely freshly picked basil! Thanks F.T.

      Double delicious with the garlic and basil, FT. I used fat-free sour cream and it didn't melt as much as I wanted. Stil--the carrots were really enhanced by the sour cream and herbs. Made for Slide into Sides, in Cooking Photos.

      This reminds me a bit of a recipe I have been making for a long time. But the basil and garlic are different. Would never have thought of it. I was tempted to make changes to this recipe as I was making it but am glad I didn't. The only thing I might do different next time is use a bit less garlic(I used fresh). But there will definately be a next time :)
