One of my favorite vegetables has to be carrots. I usually purchase the petite or small carrots in the market, just for the ease of preparation. Often, I just boil the carrots, drain and add some margarine and a teaspoon or two of brown sugar to finish the dish.
However, I recently tried adding one teaspoon of cinnamon instead of the brown sugar. This simple addition made my side dish of plain carrots have a wonderful taste profile. Sometimes just looking into my spice cabinet reveals a great new idea.
