A delicious glaze over boiled carrots. Makes a simple veggie a little special. The carrots can be steamed or microwaved until cooked. The glaze is prepared separately and poured over the cooked carrots to coat. You can either slice your carrots or use whole baby carrots, If you're not a ginger fan then you can use garlic in place of the ginger. If you have an Italian style dish the garlic can be a good substitute for the ginger called for in this recipe
