apple pie carrots


  • 1 lb carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 cup apple cider or juice
  • pinch each of cinnamon and salt
  • one pat of Earth Balance butter
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Simmer the carrots in the cider, butter, cinnamon and salt until just fork-tender. Drain the excess liquid and toss with the nuts and raisins.

* Robin at The Hungry Birdie tweaked this recipe from an episode of Chef at Home. Michael Smith was trying to come up with a way to get his son to eat carrots, so he decided to make them taste like apple pie.
