A low-fat carrot side dish.

Top Review by justcallmetoni

A delight combination of sweet and savory made this easy side dish a sure winner. I made two substitutions to make this consistent with the WW Core program, both changes are common for me and work well here. Instead of sugar, I used Stevia and also replaced the margarine with ButterBuds sprinkled on after the carrots were cooked (just before adding the lemon juice. Loved the way the broth, garlic and shallots intermixed with the natural sweetness of the carrots and the citrus served a the perfect bond for the contrasting flavors. These will definitely be added to my busy night repertoire. Made for the "I recommend" Tag Game.
