Most people don’t get too excited about carrots on the menu but Moroccan-style Carrots make for a great snack or side dish and are wonderfully delicious and nutritious thanks to beta-carotene. When prepared correctly carrots, can have a sweet taste and appetizing texture that pairs perfectly with an endless list of options. Today I am sharing my recipe of Moroccan-style Carrots which can be prepared in 10 minutes and served with lunch or dinner; or as a quick healthy snack to nibble on — top off with raisins and you’ve got yourself a new go-to side dish guaranteed.

Preparation time 10 minutes
Portion 2

1/2 pound carrots, cut diagonally into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon honey
a pinch of cayenne
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, or to taste
2 full Tbsp. raisins
Cilantro and mint

Steam the carrots for 8 minutes, or until they are just tender.
In a skillet cook the garlic in the oil over moderately low heat, stirring, for 1 minute, or until it is fragrant, add the cumin, the cinnamon, the honey, the cayenne, and the carrots, and cook the mixture, stirring, for 1 minute, or until the carrots are well-coated with the mixture.
Stir in the lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste, transfer the carrots to a bowl, and let them cool to room temperature.
Stir in raisins, chopped cilantro and mint and they are ready to be served. I love them at room temperature.
