this is an easy sidedish. I cooked it with my lasagna and 15 min in the over: vola, dinner's ready! I used onion powder instead of real onions since it only calls for 2 tbsp.=P

My, my, my. Boring these ARE NOT. These are the best carrots I've ever had, and I adore carrots. I may have grated a tiny bit too much onion, but I like onions. I love horseradish and carrots, and this is no exception. I sliced the whole carrots thin and put them in the fridge for the next day (cooked). I mixed the sauce tonite and tasted them before done and they were still delicious. Lorac, this recipe and your scallops are two of my favorite recipes EVER.

My fiancee' loved and I thought they were "interesting"....needless to say the whole lot was gone by the end of dinner! Quite rich, actually, and I think I'll use more carrots next time. Very Good.
