I always have plenty of carrots in. This is a handy extra to brighten up an average meal.

Made these without the orange juice, they had nice flavour to it, not too over-powering with the honey.

A lovely recipe even managing to get a non veg eating friend to eat them! Children love too as they're sweet. Don't think you can go wrong here.
