This carrot recipe is so good! The vinegar makes naturally sweet carrots, even sweeter. They almost taste candied! I love them so much, I’ve been making them several times a week. They last in the fridge for days and can be reheated in the microwave. Each ¾ cup serving has just 57 calories and 2 grams of fat.  Such a simple and delicious vegetable dish to any main course.
