Make It Leaner
Drizzle just 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over the carrots in Step 1 and use only 2 to 3 teaspoons oil [1 to 2 TBL] for the ginger-scallion sauce in Step 2 to shave off about 40 calories and 4.5 grams of fat per serving.
Ginger-scallion sauce is a beloved Asian condiment, traditionally served on poached chicken, but it brings incredible flavor to pretty much anything and everything. Use any leftovers on scrambled eggs, seared tofu, a sandwich, or steak.
