Did you know that carrots are the second most popular vegetable in the U. S., next to potatoes?  I didn’t until recently.  We all know carrots are high in vitamins, but did you know which ones?  Most of us could answer Vitamin A, but they’re also high in vitamins K, C and B too.  Carrots are also very high in beta-carotene, but to maximize those health benefits carrots needs to be cooked with a bit of fat.  This recipe uses olive oil, which makes this dish an excellent heart-healthy side.
