It's Spring Brunch Time!
The other day I posted a recipe for a wonderful Strawberry Spinach Salad. So Yummy! Today we're talking side dishes.
Carrots are abundant right now and bring to mind Spring and rabbits! What a perfect vegetable for a side dish. Steaming them allows you to retain all the nutrients and the result is a nice soft crisp carrot. Add a wonderful sauce with a sweet flavor and you are set. I chose ginger and garlic for the flavorings here.
Easy to make, and quick to prepare...you don't want to be in the kitchen all day do you?
The result? Perfection! Try for yourself!
