Total Time

I was looking through my mother's cookbooks and found this recipe, so I had to store it here to try soon. It looks sweet, delicious, and best of all, simple. It comes from Lean and Luscious and Meatless.

This was pretty good....I was disappointed that I couldn't taste the honey. It was nice for something different, but I don't think I'll be making it again. But thanks for sharing!

SO healthy, SO simple to make and SO incredibly delicious: I know that this is a recipe I’ll be making often. The cinnamon flavouring was superb, and all the flavours blended so well. Because I was using baby carrots, this was SO sweet that I can well imagine eating it with a dollop of Greek yoghurt as a dessert or for breakfast! It is a recipe that crosses all boundaries and hovers in a kind of culinary ‘serve for any course, for any meal’ no-man’s-land all of its own! LOVED it. And very low calorie and low fat! Any more gems in the same book, Kree? I enjoyed it for dinner with Rita L’s Mushroom Rice Recipe #142613. Thanks so much for sharing this one!
