Steamed Carrots With Garlic-Ginger Butter (Weight Watcher Friend

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 10 mins

A nice, fresh way to prepare carrots. Weight Watcher 2 points Crockpot version: I have made this ahead of time and put them in the crockpot just to heat up. If you plan on doing it this way, have the carrots a bit under cooked. They take roughly 3/4 - 1 hour to heat up (depending on crockpot)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare garlic; let stand 10 minutes.
  2. Steam carrots, covered, 10 minutes or until tender.
  3. Heat butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger to pan; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in carrots, cilantro, and remaining ingredients.

I searched, found, prepared and cooked this dish in about 15 minutes! This is delicious, I used powdered ginger, coriander, and no lime rind and they still came out sooooo good!

Wonderful dish! Easy, easy and quick. I forgot to pick up babies and cut regular carrots to the size of baby carrots. The sweetness of the carrots was a great counter point to the tang of the lime and the sharpness of the ginger. Will definetly have these again. Thnx for posting, Abby Girl.
