I modified it a little by cooking 1 cup of water and a 1/2 tea of chicken broth with the carrots on top of the stove for about 15 min. Then I added the honey and several dashes of ginger. Stirred the mix and let sit with a lid for 5 min. It was very good.

I did up the water a little, these carrots were perfect, a lovely sidedish to any meal. Always good to have no-fuss meals after a long day at work! Thank you, BBHB, lovely recipe, made for PAC Fall 2012

I needed a quick vegetable dish with my dinner one evening, and this was perfect. Great tasting, and so easy to put together. The only change I would make would be to cover the container while microwaving because my water boiled away and the carrots were a little dry.
