Caramalized Carrots with Curry Spice

Carrots are one of my favorite cooked veggies!  It must be because they are SWEET!  Plain carrots quickly transform into an irresistible side dish with the help of cilantro and three simple spices. With less than 50 calories, this is a great way to switch things up and get in some of your veggies for the day.
