    Coincidentally, I was thinking I hadn’t made a side dish spotlighting carrots in a long time so on Monday I made something similar to your carrots only using honey, ground coriander seeds and a dash of cumin instead. I really like the acid from the lime here though and will definitely try this soon.

    Interesting to see carrots served with lime and not orange. I love it. Also, your herbs and spices are a great addition. Carrots are so good for us….it’s wonderful to see new and different ways to eat them. Thanks, Erica!

    Carrot and mint! Genius! I am always trying to think of things to do with carrots and ya know what I end up doing with them? Nothing. I skin them and eat them raw. Or I don’t even buy them. But this seems so simple and I even have the ingredients! Delicious, delightful, fantastico!
