Recipe by Chickee

From Sanitarium, put here for safekeeping! It said zucchini, but I hate zucchini so I replaced with carrots.

Made for the Aussie / Kiwi Recipe swap #24. Good texture and easy to make, however I felt they were on the bland side. If I make them again I will use brown onions and add a cloe of garlic. Will also add the spices to the onion mixture near the end of the caramelsing process to unlock their taste.
