  • 2 lb carrots, trimmed & peeled
  • water
  • 1 orange, zested & juiced
  • 2 tsp ginger, minced
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt, divided


  • Zest the orange first and then juice.  You will not need all the zest but you can freeze what you don’t need and use it later.
  • Cut peeled carrots into 3/4″ chunks and place in a large pot.  Add enough water to cover by 1/2″, add 1/2 tsp salt, and bring to a boil.  Cook covered ~ 12-15 minutes or until nearly tender.  Drain excess water, reduce heat, and put carrots back on heat.
  • Add orange juice, ginger, olive oil, and 1/2 tsp salt.  Cook until orange juice reduces (~ 3 minutes).
  • Garnish with as much orange zest as desired and add salt to taste.  Happy Eating!  Beckie
