Love this dish - delicious and so fancy looking yet so easy. Looks and tastes like restaurant food :) I'm not a huge fan of cooked carrots but these are steamed just the right amount and the ginger/garlic/lime combo is outstanding. My husband liked them too.
This is a keeper! I'd give it 6 stars if I could! Followed the recipe to a T and have made it again and again and again for Christmas dinner parties, Thanksgiving, and just regular ol' family dinners. Everyone looooves this side dish adn the best part is it's verrrry easy!
I cooked these tonight. I used rainbow carrots and they came out pretty good. I had to get creative with the directions because I didn't think they were very clear but overall...I'll make them again. My daughter enjoyed as well.
Yum! Will make this again. Even a friend who does not like cooked carrots had seconds. I couldn't find the "baby" carrots in the store, so we used the bagged snack carrots & cooked them "Andante" as I'm in agreement with my friend and like a little crunch rather than mush when I eat cooked carrots.
OMG, I want to roll around in that sauce! It was AWESOME! I left out the ginger because I don't care for it and used dried cilantro. The carrots took twice as long to steam, but I don't think I got real baby ones - although they did have the stems attached. Anyway, my husband and I both loved this.
Made this with miniature-cut carrots, and had to steam longer accordingly. The sauce is delicious - my family loved this dish. I had not expected such a tangy flavor - the title of this dish should be carrots with lime-garlic-ginger sauce. The combination of lime, garlic, butter and ginger is delish, and the cilantro really adds to the total effect. I will definitely be making this again.
I did a julienne cut on the carrots and then steamed them in the microwave for 4 minutes before tossing them in the sauce. They were just fabulous! It's a rare meal when the most memorable dish is a veggie!
