My son could could eat this whole dish himself if he could LOL! This recipe should be enough to serve about 5-6 people, but can be doubled, and you might want to consider doing that, as this dish is so delicious!. The carrots are still great even without topping them with almonds, but I most always top with almonds if serving this to compnay. Don't make the mistake of adding in too much ginger, I have done this before, and it just overpowers all of the other ingredients, 1/2 teaspoon is really all tht you need. You will love this!
