Instructions Checklist

  • Coat the pan with more cooking spray. Add shallots and ginger and cook over medium heat, stirring, for 1 minute. Reduce heat to low. Add coconut milk, peanut butter and lime juice. Whisk until well combined and warm.

  • Return the carrots to the pan and cook, tossing with tongs, until just heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. If needed, add water to thin out the sauce and help it coat the carrots. Transfer the mixture back to the serving dish. Sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro.
