North African Spiced Carrots

The trinity of North African seasonings, cumin, coriander and paprika, lends exotic appeal to this simple carrot preparation.

Serves 6

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 3 cups sliced carrots, (4 medium-large)
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, paprika, cumin and coriander; cook, stirring, until fragrant but not browned, about 20 seconds. Add carrots, water, lemon juice and salt; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until almost tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Uncover and simmer, stirring often, until the carrots are just tender and the liquid is syrupy, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in parsley. Serve hot or at room temperature.
