This is a fabulous recipe; simple and fast! I have made this five times now. Even my hard to please mother in law couldn't complain about it! The best thing to do is steam the vegetables in a steamer basket. Put the carrots in first until they are about 3/4 of the way done, then add the pea pods to the steamer basket. As soon as the pea pods are in, take a small sauce pan and make the glaze. Usually the vegetables are ready right when I get the glaze finished. Then just dump the vegetables into the sauce pan, stir lightly so you don't break apart the pea pods, and Voila! I can't thank you enough for this wonderful recipe. :-)

What a Dish!

This was great, and beautiful too! I used baby carrots, steamed for about 7-8 minutes, (not boiled), then added the pea pods and only steamed for 45 seconds. This was a perfect amount of time. Then continued with the recipe, leaving out the cornstarch. This went great with garlic salmon and brown/wild rice. My kids (aged 4 and 1) loved this too!

A good way to prepare carrots and pea pods. After reading the reviews, I cut the butter back to 1 tbsp, which was plenty. I also added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar and a grind of salt and pepper. Great flavour.
