Recipe by TasteTester

Carrots really lend themselves to the fresh tangy taste of orange juice, and this recipe couldn't be simpler to prepare.

The DM, DS and I really enjoyed this as a side with recipe #276605 though I did not add the salt (personal preference) and as I don't know what orange juice concentrate is I used orange juice but would add zest next time too, to give it more depth of flavour. thank you Taste Tester, made for Make My Recipe - Edition 11.
