  1. Fill a large pot half-full with water. Bring to a boil.
  2. While waiting for water to boil, rinse, peel, and slice carrots into ¼-inch slices.

  3. In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat orange juice until liquid thickens and reduces by about ¾. Watch carefully after it reduces by ½ so that it does not boil dry in the pan. Juice may take up to 20 minutes to reduce.
  4. Add carrots to boiling water. Cook until slightly soft but still a bit crunchy, about 7–10 minutes.

  5. In a colander, drain carrots. Rinse under cold water.
  6. In a medium bowl, add carrots, salt, basil, black pepper, and orange juice sauce. Toss until carrots are fully coated. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
