Sally's Recipe of the Week: Gingered Orange Carrots

November is National Diabetes Month so I  wanted to spotlight good and easy dishes that are also diabetic friendly.  Thanksgiving turkey is generally a good protien for people with diabetes. It's the side dishes that can get a little trickey. This dish is simple and everyone will want to eat it!

Gingered Orange Carrots

Makes 4 servings



  • 6 medium carrots (about 3/4 pound), peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup homemade chicken broth, or canned reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons margarine
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh gingerroot, or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • chopped fresh parsley (optional)



  1. Combine the carrots and broth in a medium saucepan. Cover and simmer over low heat until almost tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the orange juice, margarine, and ginger; simmer, uncovered, until almost all the liquid is absorbed. Serve hot.
  3. Garnish with parsley, optional

Sally's Notes: I added just a little salt at the end.
