Recipe by chuckmall

No marshmallows here! This recipe is sophisticated for grown-ups but children love it too. Plus, it's easy and quick.

Absolutely great way to serve up this often neglected vegetable! I enjoy carrot side dishes, so am always on the lookout for ones like this! Thanks for sharing it! It's another one of your to-make-for-special-company recipes! Had a couple of friends over to help with some work on the outside of our mobile home & knew they enjoyed fries & a dip, so I used them as testers for this recipe! Passed with flying colors, too ~ We all thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks for posting it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
