I used baby carrots and left them whole. I steamed them to cut down on the fat, then made the glaze and added the carrots to it. Very good dish. I also omitted the salt.
Really easy and *really* good. I followed some others suggestions, and eliminated the broth and oil, and added zest. I also added fresh ground black pepper. Even DH liked it. Now *that* is a great review. Other than potatoes, peas and corn....it's the only other vegetable DH will eat, so it's nice to have a variety....for me. Thanks Toni, for a wonderful recipe.
One of the things I liked best abou this recipe was how easy it came together. I had everything else in the oven when my guests arrived, and with the carrots pre-shredded and the sauce pre-mixed. It was just a matter of sauteing for a few minutes. I used baby carrots put through the food processor to avoid peeling and cutting them up. Since I used almost all of a 2 lb bag of baby carrots, I made 1 1/2 times the sauce. I used all OJ, added the honey, and substituted potato starch for the corn starch since I made this during Passover (and corn starch isn't allowed). It had a strong orange flavor and just the right amount of sweetness.
What a great way to prepare this greatly under-appreciated veggie! As with others, I deleted the chicken broth, increased the orange juice [AND added a bit of orange zest!], & the result was OUTSTANDING! Thanks so much for this great recipe!
Toni I reduced even father. In place of the oil I used water to cook the carrots that I shredded in the food processor. I skipped the broth and used all orange juice. I just had to add a pinch of nutmeg and ground cardamom. Yum!
Delicious Toni! I made the recipe as is (except I halved it and added more orange juice). I was lazy and brought pre-shredded carrots...!! Thanks Toni1
Very easy and tasty recipe! I used a bag of matchstick carrots and did add the honey. Enjoyed the tender crisp carrots but wanted a little more of the orange flavor to come thru. Next time I think I will not add the honey and use less chicken broth and more orange juice.
