A Wonderful change of pace for a quick carrot side dish or snack! We really enjoyed this recipe because it was simple and quick to fix. Unfortunately the recipe didn't specify whether to use raw steamed or cooked carrots and the first time I tried it with raw carrots and it was Ok but not great. The 2nd time I steamed the carrots until just tender and they were really good. We serve them both as a side dish and for a snack. The toasted sesame really compliment the carrots. Pros: Very easy to fix and well received by the entire family. Cons: I think that the directions were not specific enough. Read More
