This is a tasty recipe-the combination of flavors is great. It is also easy. I think the next time I make it I would just saute it all together (including the pecans) so they coat too - nice entry-good luck!! Might depend on how crunchy - cooked you like the carrots to remain - they may need to cook a bit longer for my taste. RSC#10.

I love sweet carrots, and these were very good. Simple to make and the pecans added a nice touch. 15 minutes was not long enough on my carrots werent browning yet but were tender and I think they would be better once they started to char. I might leave out the onion in this and just stick with the carrots..very good taste and super easy!

For us these were just ok. The lemon seemed out of place and we were divided on the nuts being good with it or not.
