Notes

If you are able to purchase carrots with their tops intact, wash and save them to create a bed of greens under the carrots when serving. Lightly sauté, and enjoy them to eat as well.
To adapt this recipe to a vegan diet, remove the feta cheese. Depending on the type of vegan you are serving, you may also want to remove the honey.
