    Dorel's Note:

    This is my adopted recipe. This is delicious with the subtle taste of orange. I doubled the recipe but must admit I didn't measure anything. I sliced the carrots in my new Cuisinart, the first time I've used the slicer on it.

      The thing I love most about one-serving recipes is that, unlike when I scale down recipes to 1 serving, I don't have to worry about adjusting cooking times and temperatures. The instructions in this recipe were absolutely perfect! It's important to cut the carrots into juilenne strips, or they won't be done. I didn't have orange rind, so I used a drop of orange extract instead, and it tasted great! I also added a sprinkling of salt at the end. I will make this all the time from now on...
