Sugar-kissed Carrots

This is a really simple recipe for cooked carrots.  If you are like me, you are always looking for tasty vegetable recipes the entire family will enjoy.  This is my favorite way to cook fresh carrots.  A little bit of sugar brings out the natural sweetness of the carrots. 

Sugar-kissed Carrots 

1 pound fresh carrots, peeled and sliced
2 c water
1 T margarine*
1 T sugar
¼ t salt

Place carrots in a sauce pan and just cover with the water.  Bring to a boil on high heat.  Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until able to easily prick carrots with a fork.  Drain off water and toss with margarine, sugar and salt until coated.  Serve warm.  4-6 servings.

*For those allergic to dairy, make sure the margarine you use is dairy-free.
