2 teaspoons canola oil
3 cups grated carrots, (6 medium-large)
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
½ cup orange juice
¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrots and ginger; cook, stirring often, until wilted, about 2 minutes.
