 California Orange Carrots
I found it very difficult to get children (and even my "big kid") to eat carrots. By adding an orange and serving carrots crisp-tender, I have found that my family is very receptive to this vegetable dish.
6 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 20 min.


  • 1 pound carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium navel orange, peeled, sectioned and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced green onion, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel


  • In a large saucepan, cook carrots in water with salt until
  • crisp-tender; drain. Return to pan; add the remaining ingredients.
  • Heat through. Yield: 6 servings.
