Baby carrots with a zip! These are cooked in the microwave for a quick vegetable side.

Top Review by Charlotte J

Five minutes in my microwave and this dish was ready for the table. I microwaved ALL the ingredients together. I will be making this one again. If there are children around I'll have a second batch made without the cayenne pepper for them. Made for Recipe Swap #62 Australian/New Zealand Cooking game
