Carrots Supreme
JoAnna M. Lund

It's just amazing how much kitchen magic you can work using tiny amounts of flavoring in a vegetable dish like this low-calorie carrot concoction! It's savory and sweet all at once, and delivers great taste as well as good nutrition.
Serves 4 (scant 1 cup)

4 cups sliced carrots
1/2 cup diced onion
2 tablespoons Hormel Bacon Bits
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons Cary's sugar-free maple syrup

In a medium sauce pan, cook carrots in boiling water until tender, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile in a large saucepan sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, saute onion until temder, about 5 minutes. Stir in Bacon Bits and black pepper. Drain carrots and return to saucepan. Mash well with potato masher or electric mixer. Stir in maple syrup. Add carrots to onion mixture. Mix well to combine. Continue cooking until heated through. Serve at once.

Each serving equals:
