      Very nice side dish. I used pre-cut carrot sticks from the store. Really like the ginger. Made for football pool, 2012.

      Oh I am so sorry I could not do this with black sesame seeds (searched health food, gourmet shops and supermarkets and could not get) so had to use regular but the taste was delicious. My only confusion was carrots shredded (to me means grated) but realized after making that to me is juliened (finely sliced in sticks). I sliced them finely on the diagonal and allowed some extra time to cook them especially for the DM as she likes them softer than al-dente, did scale back to 2 serves and was more than enough for 3 of us as a side, thank you AZPARZYCH, made for Everyday A Holiday.

      Cut the recipe in half for the 2 of us & we both thoroughly enjoyed the flavor combo of sesame seed & ginger with the carrots! Certainly dresses 'em up! Easy recipe, too, which makes it a nice keeper! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]
