Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



These are some good flavorful carrots. The taste is all about Mediterranean and the pomegranate molasses (one of my favorite ingredients), makes it taste wonderful. Followed as directed, except that instead of mint, substituted with cilantro because that’s what I had. I totally forgot to add pine nuts and I had them too, but will remember next time. Thank you, ellie, for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag.
