Pea Pod Carrot Medley

We grow pea pods, and I wanted to use them in something other than stir-fries. This fit the bill! I've carried it to church potlucks and received compliments on its pretty orange glaze and fresh taste. —Josie Smith, Winamac, Indiana

    This was GREAT!! I didn't have any orange juice, so I used mango juice and I served it with black bean burgers. Terrific!
