Step 1

Place carrot strips in a 1-quart casserole. Sprinkle with water. Micro-cook, covered, on 100% power for 2 to 3 minutes or just till carrot strips are crisp-tender. Let stand, covered, while preparing butter mixture. For butter mixture, in a custard cup combine butter or margarine, orange peel, and basil. Micro-cook, uncovered, on 100% power about 30 seconds or till butter or margarine is melted. Drain Carrots. Drizzle butter mixture over carrot strips. Garnish with snipped parsley, if desired.
