Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 20 mins
Servings 6 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb. carrot sliced or use crinkle-cut carrots
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/8 lemon juice only, about 1 tsp.
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. dried dill optional

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the carrots, and stir to coat them with the oil. Sauté them for about 4 minutes until they begin to get tender.
  • Meanwhile, in a measuring cup or small bowl, combine the orange juice, lemon juice, honey, and ginger. Pour the mixture over the carrots, bring it to a boil, and allow it to simmer for about 3 minutes.
  • Cover the carrots, reduce the heat to keep them at a simmer, and steam them for about 5 minutes until they are tender. Sprinkle them liberally with the dill (optional) before serving.

Slow Cooker Directions

  • Place all ingredients, except the dill in the slow cooker and cook on low for 7 – 8 hours or on high for 4 - 5 hours. Sprinkle them liberally with the dill, if desired, before serving.
