This was pretty good. I steamed my carrots.

I made 1/2 the recipe and after I adjusted it (because of the sauce was way to thick I need to add 1/2 cup of broth)would have enjoyed the whole amount. Very tasty love the cloves in this. Cooking times should be stated for the carrots! I cooked mine in the microwave oven for 4 minutes then added to the thick sauce hoping it would thin some but didn`t at which point I added the broth. This would have been 5 stars if you tweaked it a bit. I loved it! Thanks.

I am giving this a 4 star because I thought they deserved 5 stars but my daughter thought 3 stars. So I am compromising. I think these are it when you want something just a bit different, but good tasting.
