When I've got a lot going on, my slow cooker is my go-to tool for cooking veggies. I toss in cumin and chili powder to bring out their natural sweetness. —Courtney Stultz, Columbus, KS

"Added cranberries. Good fall dish. Nice recipe with carrots that doesn't have a sugary glaze"

"Needs golden raisins or diced apples. Otherwise, a good fall dish.

EDIT: Bumping up from 4 to 5 stars after (finally) trying with golden raisins. I added the raisins at the end. This dish will not appeal to the meat-and-potatoes crowd, but those who enjoy ethnic foods will appreciate it."
