    I love the flavor of cardamom, and I'm sure that it tastes amazing with the orange zest. I would probably leave out the sugar.

      It's great with or without sugar. Buttoni's suggestion of maple extract sounds exciting. If your carrots need a bit of sweetness, try using a light drizzle of honey. I used the brown sugar to entice kids to eat their veggies. Cheese and sugar work for this depending on the veggie.
