I used the tiny new carrots from my container garden. The sauce is excellent.

I haven't tried the recipe BUT may I suggest that you:
* 1 can of coconut milk instead of mayo and cream
* lime instead of lemon
* finely chop or squeeze 3 garlic cloves
* 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
* 1 tsp curry powder
* 1 tsp fish sauce OR worcestershire sauce
Put one package baby carrots in pan with tight-fitting lid. Add 4 tbsp butter or oil and 1 tbsp water. Put on low heat for 40 minutes then remove lid and add remaining ingredients. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Sounds delish, Jill! I will definitely try it. I love plain steamed veggies (maybe with a pinch of sea salt or Mrs.Dash) but it's nice to sometimes have a healthy sauce for a "break the boredom" twist. Thanks!
