Brown Sugar & 5 Spice Carrots
There are a few facts from my cooking past...here they are in no particular order - NO JUDGEMENT ZONE HERE
1. Rice a Roni, this is a healthy dinner...and considered real cooking
2. Ranch is good on EVERYTHING...ok this still rings true
3. Carrots are for rabbits, or need to be adequately coated in ranch (reference # 2)
There are many more rules I lived by - those are just a few.
I have since reversed my standing on the whole rabbit carrot thing, depending on if the rabbits care to share.
8 Carrots, skinned and sliced
1/2 tsp Olive Oil
1 tbs butter, melted
2 tbs brown sugar
1/8 tsp Chinese 5 star spice (go light, it is mighty powerful)
Pre-heat oven to 400.
Place carrots in a foil lined baking pan and toss with olive oil.
Add brown sugar & 5 star spice to melted butter, toss with the carrots. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until fork tender.
I ate mine plain and added them into a chicken wrap I had for dinner!
