Ingredients:
  • 1 pounds carrots peeled and cut into 1" wedges
  • 2 tablespoon margarine soft tub reduced-fat, trans fat–free
  • 1/4 cup ginger, fresh grated
  • 2 teaspoons ginger, ground
  • salt, coarse
  • pepper, black ground
Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Tear a large piece of aluminum foil, about 24" long. Spread the carrots evenly over one half. Rub the carrots with the margarine, fresh ginger, and ground ginger. Season with salt and pepper.

Fold the opposite end of the foil over, folding around the edges to make a neat package with no openings. Place the package on a baking sheet and bake 20 to 25 minutes, until the carrots are tender when pierced with a knife. Serve immediately.
