Baby Carrots with Pineapple Glaze
Ingredients
  • 1  pound  tiny whole carrots
  • 3  medium leeks (12 ounces), sliced 1/2-inch thick (1 cup)
  • 1  cup  unsweetened pineapple, orange, or apple juice
  • 2  teaspoons  cornstarch
  • 1/2  teaspoon  grated fresh ginger or 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground nutmeg
  •  Plain yogurt (optional)
Directions

1. To trim carrots, leave 1 to 2 inches of stem; it is not necessary to peel them. In a medium saucepan cook carrots, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 5 minutes. Add sliced leeks; cook about 5 minutes more or until carrots are crisp-tender. Drain and set aside.

2. For glaze, in the same saucepan combine juice, cornstarch, fresh or ground ginger, salt, and nutmeg. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Stir in vegetables; heat through. Garnish each serving with a dollop of plain yogurt, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
