Ginger-Orange Carrots |  Vegetable Day

Vegetables are packed with essential nutrients and bring with them numerous health benefits. So how do we get the most from our veggies? A 2007 study by the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry found that cooking certain vegetables, like carrots, allows the body to better absorb nutrients.

Makes 4 servings. Uses 4 oz of daily vegetable allowance. If eating orange slices, include in daily fruit allowance.
