We really enjoyed this for dinner and I couldn't find a recipe quite like it on recipezaar. This was lovely with ham and a salad. From a Weight Watcher's cookbook. Each serving is 1 point.
- 1 lb carrot
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground pepper
- Peel the carrots and slice them. Put them in a pan with the cup of water. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until soft (but not mushy). Drain and return to the pan.
- While the carrots are cooking combine the other ingredients in a small bowl. Mix well to combine.
- When the carrots are drained add the vinegar mixture and return to the heat. Stir frequently for 2 minutes.
- Serve warm.
This was such a quick, easy side dish. We really enjoyed it. I used fresh basil, which was delicious. I ended up adding salt, though. But this was still a great recipe. Thank you!
I think I would usually rate this a 3 or 4. I didn't think it was awesome, but it was good. Directions were easy. I just don't think my family likes cooked carrots very much, and I served it with Recipe #33058 (I know, weird choice), so it was definitely overshadowed. I might make this again with a roast or something to get a more accurate picture of the flavor.
Very tasty! I made this as a side dish with dinner last night and it was very yummy! I will definitely save this recipe for future use. I love coked carrots and it's nice to find a recipe that's not sweet (although I love maple glaze carrots!) Sweet just doesn't go well with everything. This made a great side to a sausage pasta bake & fresh sourdough bread.
