Very nice combination of flavors. Not too high in calories.

- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted and chopped

- Saute carrots, garlic and ginger in sesame oil, over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
- Add sesame seeds.
- Cover and saute for another 3 minutes or until carrots are heated but still crisp.
It's been over half hour after dinner and I STILL can't get over how awesome this dish was!!! The combination of carrots, sesame, ginger and garlic is simply out of this world, with each ingredient contributing in its own special way. This recipe is perfect in every way, and even though I usually HAVE to add salt to everything, I didn't even need a sprinkling of it here! The only thing I changed(?) was in not chopping the sesame seeds, because, um, they're so tiny anyway! :-) I can't gush enough over this, Bergy... thank you sooooo much!
The seasonings were great and it was a perfect compliment to our asian flavored meal. That said, the cooking time ended up twice what the recipe called for to get them crisp tender. Next time I'll lightly steam them first and then saute.
Definitely a nice way to dress up the ol' carrot & so easy to prepare, too! I'll certainly be making these again & again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC recipe tag]
