6 carrots, (12 ounces), cut into 1/4-inch-by-2-inch matchsticks
4 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
Place carrots and garlic in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and boil for 30 seconds. (Alternatively, place carrots, garlic and 1/4 cup water in a 1-quart casserole; cover with lid or vented plastic wrap and microwave on High until crisp-tender, 5 to 7 minutes, stirring midway.)
Immediately drain the carrots and garlic; transfer to a medium bowl. Add vinegar, oil, thyme and sugar and toss well. Let cool for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Discard the garlic and season with salt and pepper.
