Sweet and Savory Gingered Carrots

Carrots are one of the few things I can almost always find in my fridge. They may be my most favorite vegetable. This versatile root makes a crunchy snack, a yummy soup, even a great cake! My favorite way to cook carrots lately is with ginger, and the whole family loves it. I have occasionally added some caramelized onion, but the kids prefer it without (and it’s one less vegetable to chop).
