Simply Delicious Honey Spiced Carrots

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Mama's Kitchen (Hope)

Edited after RSC reviews to make this less sweet. Carrots are a tasty yet budget conscious vegetable. However, cardamom can be an expensive spice so I buy it in bulk at my Health Food Store. That way I can buy just what I need at a fraction of the price charged in the grocery store! Kids generally like baby carrots so why not cook them up as a tasty side dish and get them eating a vegetable with their meal! Remember, DO NOT give honey to children under one year of age! I like to saute the carrots as that brings out the sweetness of the carrots but steam them if you prefer. Hope you enjoy this creation!

I guess I'm just one of those who's soooo easily satisfied, at least when it comes to foods that I enjoy! Although I made this without the cilantro, the recipe was otherwise followed, & we thoroughly enjoyed this honey-sweet carrot dish! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
