Who loves carrots?
Well today is your day! Tonight for dinner I made some Moroccan glazed carrots and going to show you all how to make them.
An easy recipe to compliment almost any meal and also a great way to spice up your average carrot dish.
3-5 large carrots, peeled and cut on the bias
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon of pure honey or agave nectar
1-2 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic, chili powder, cinnamon, salt, and cayenne pepper.
After a few minutes, lower heat and add the vinegar and stir for about a minute.
Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the honey/agave. Then carefully toss in the carrots to evenly coat each piece.
Spread the carrots in an even layer on a prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes (or until tender). Transfer the carrots to a mixing or serving bowl. Stir in the fresh parsley.
I decided to make some glazed shrimp on the side to eat with my carrots.
