Carrots make a great side dish that is easy to cook with a few ingredients. The carrots from last week’s CSA share can be cut into matchsticks or smaller vertical slices to cook more quickly in this orange glazed carrot recipe. I peel them to remove the extra roots with a simple carrot peeler. The oranges are extremely juicy and can make almost 1/4 per orange. Perfect match of food.
