2 C baby carrots or chopped regular carrots
1/3 C lemon juice or 1/2 lemon
2 tsp dried or 1 Tbs. fresh rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste
Microwave method: Place baby carrots in a microwave-safe bowl. Pour lemon juice over carrots then sprinkle with rosemary, salt and pepper. Cover lightly and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Pierce carrots with a knife or fork to test for tenderness. Continue microwaving in 30 second increments until carrots reach desired tenderness.
Foil cooking method: Take a large piece of aluminum foil and fold up on all sides a bit forming a bowl. Place baby carrots and ½ of lemon in the foil. Sprinkle with rosemary, salt and pepper. Fold foil around contents sealing into a pouch. Place pouch on a cookie sheet and bake in a 350°F oven for about 30 minutes or until tender. You can also throw the foil on the grill or in hot coals if you are camping.
