Shake the veggie blahs with this easy side dish of molasses glazed carrots that can go with just about any meal.


Dr. Oz says to eat your veggies. And lots of them. It’s just that sometimes a plateful of boiled or steamed veggies  seems like so much effort to eat. Shake the veggie blahs with this easy side dish that can go with just about any meal.

Because root vegetables store so well there is a chance that you have them on hand, even if you have run out of everything else.

No parsnips? No problem. Carrots are great on their own if that’s what’s in your fridge.

Variation: substitute one tsp. of cumin for the herbs.
