Author Notes

I first came up with this recipe over six years ago; I needed a vegetable side dish and also to use up some cranberry sauce. While I prefer to use homemade orange-flavored whole cranberry sauce, plain cranberry sauce would be delicious, or leave it out altogether for a delicious orange flavored carrot dish. —katiebakes
