Check the farmers market for fresh-picked carrots.
Baking carrots with honey, as in this recipe from the Shane Diet & Fitness Resorts collection, adds color, not calories to your Thanksgiving dinner. Your family won't know the difference.
8 carrots, peeled
1/4 cup honey
Salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the whole carrots into a baking dish and pour on the honey, then season to taste with salt and pepper; mix until evenly coated.
Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, or cooked to your desired degree of doneness, 40 minutes to 1 hour.
Makes 8 servings.
