I like to give vegetables a kick up with a nice balance of acidity and orange juice is a perfect compliment to carrots. I'm not really a zest fan but you can most certainly add it when you make these.
Orange Glazed Carrots
2 cups sliced carrots (I used frozen)
1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 tbsp butter
1 pinch ginger
1 pinch salt
Cook carrots in water until tender. Drain and add in remaining ingredients. Stir until well mixed and heat until the sauce thickens.
