Expert Tips

  • Instead of the carrots cut into julienne strips or baby-cut carrots, you can use 1 1/2 bags (1-lb size) frozen sliced carrots, cooked as directed on the bag.
  • If using baby-cut carrots and some are large, cut them in half lengthwise so all of the carrots cook in the same amount of time.
