Expert Tips

Add 2 stalks celery (sliced), 1/2 red bell pepper (cut into 1/2-inch strips) or 1 jar (4.5 oz) Green Giant® sliced mushrooms (drained) with the carrots.

To toast sesame seed, which enhances its flavor, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
