This delicious side dish has orange juice, ginger and carrots with cornstarch. A few tablespoons of brown sugar sweeten it up and balances beautifully with the citrusy orange flavours. The addition of cornstarch thickens up into a light sauce that coats the carrots.

We love this carrot dish with Honey Garlic Pork Chops and they would also be delicious with turkey, chicken or a ham dinner. This recipe can easily be doubled and tripled for a larger batch.

Guaranteed to turn a non-veggie lover’s heart, this recipe is a must for your family recipe box.
