We love to use the sweet baby carrots that you can get from Costco in the produce section. The raw carrots are delicious all by themselves but even more perfect for this dish.

Any kind of carrot will do for this easy recipe though. Just be sure that they are peeled and cut uniformly so that they all cook evenly.
