Lap-band Friendly: Carrot Coconut Saute

Submitted by: SUBPOPTART
Lap-band Friendly: Carrot Coconut Saute

Introduction

This is a great side dish or a light lunch. I created it after having extra carrots from a soup I was making. The combination of curry, coconut milk and pistachio adds a rich sauce to a simple vegetable. This is a great side dish or a light lunch.
