Garlic Carrots (Reply to Veggie Request)

I don't have a picture because I haven't made it super recently, but wanted to post this for you (and anyone else interested). These are super easy and taste very yummy! A great way to jazz up basic cooked carrots. I got it years ago from a Quick Cooking magazine and have made them several times.

1 lb. baby carrots
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 TBSP olive or vegi oil (I use olive)
1/4 cup hot water
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried thyme
dash pepper

In a skillet, saute carrots and garlic in oil for 5 minutes. Add water, salt, thyme and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 8-12 minutes or until carrots are tender.
