Ginger Ale Carrots
  • 1 ½ pounds carrots, peeled and cut down to 2 inch pieces
  • 4-5 tbs olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly cracked pepper
  • Zest and juice of 2 oranges divided
  • 2 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • ½ cup ginger ale
  • 1 tbs ginger finely minced
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley divided
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Toss the carrots in the olive oil seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Douse the carrots with the zest and juice of one of the oranges and toss in the smashed garlic. Heat a large oven proof sauté pan over medium high heat. Arrange the carrots in one even layer in the pan, pour in the ginger ale and cook the carrots on the stove top till they start to color. Transfer the pan to the oven and allow to cook for about 10-15 minutes.
  3. The glaze will reduce and the carrots will become fork tender- that is how you will know they are done. Remove them from the oven and set aside to cool slightly while you make the topping.
  4. In a small bowl mix together the pecans, remaining orange zest and juice, ginger and parsley. Season generously with salt and pepper then sprinkle the mixture all over the carrots. Delish!
