This recipe is from our local supermarket, Wegmans' Menu Magazine, Winter 2012 Edition. It sounds heavenly. Someday when I have time, I'd love to try it. It is listed as one of their kid-approved recipes, but I think it would also appeal to those of us who are just "big kids at heart".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place oil in a braising pan over high heat. Add carrots, bay leaf, vanilla bean pod and seeds and cayenne (optional in my opinion). Salt to taste. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes until carrots just beginj to soften.
  2. Add orange juice, vegetable stock and heavy cream. Cook, stirring, for 12-15 minutes until sauce is reduced to a syrupy consistency, and carrots are tender. Season to taste with salt.
  3. Turn off heat. Add butter, green onions and parsley. Stir until butter is melted. Remove vanilla bean pods and bay leaf.
