  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup peach preserves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup salted roasted almonds, coarsely chopped


  • Place carrots and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high for 4-6 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.
