Fast and easy.


  1. Melt the butter in a microwave resistant container that is large enough to hold all the carrots. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss to combine.
  2. Cover and cook 5-8 minutes or until carrots are crisp-tender. Serve, garnishing with more orange zest, if desired.

Easy and great! Next time I'll make a whole pound because we gobbled these up!

I halved this recipe and had to leave out the orange--but so simple and so good! I will definitely be cooking carrots this way again! Thank you!
