Such a unique and tasty way to serve carrots. There were wonderful for Thanksgiving and will be appearing again at Chirstmas time!

Fantasic! This was a reprieve from simply buttered, boring carrots. As a vegetarian, I was impressed at how well the veggie flavor was preserved and enhanced by the sauce, rather than masking it. I tried this on my carnivorous parents and they haven't stopped raving about this recipe! I'm going to remember to make this @ every Thanksgiving or any chance I get!
