At least she'll have really good eye's...

My little "r" has decided she loves carrots recently. I don't think I've ever seen someone who can down carrots quite like she can. So I've been serving them as a side dish more these days.

I decided to try something new the other night and it turned out pretty good. Even little "r" approved.


SWEET GINGER CARROTS
(Mindi Original)

4 C. Carrots (either baby carrots or sliced whole carrots)
2 T. butter (to save calories I sometimes use diet butter spread)
1/4 C. brown sugar
2 T. fresh ginger; minced (or 2 t. ground ginger)
salt & pepper

1. Lay the carrots on a large sheet of tin foil, sprayed with cooking spray.
2. Season the carrots with salt & pepper.
3. Lay the butter on top of the carrots then sprinkle with the minced ginger and brown sugar.
4. Wrap the tin foil around the carrots and seal tightly.
5. Roast the tin foil wrapped carrots in a 400 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until the carrots are cooked through. (Smaller carrots won't take quite as long, and larger carrots may take a little longer.)

I've always loved glazed carrots with butter and brown sugar. Never thought to add ginger! I'll have to try it ~

Not a huge fan of cooked carrots, but I LOVE ginger. I will have to try this and maybe I can become like "Little R" and my girls who will eat anything!
