So many things you can do with carrots (refer to my CARROT TACO SHELLS post) believe it or not.

If you love carrots as much as I do, then today is your lucky day! Tonight for dinner I made some Moroccan glazed carrots and I am going to show you 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.
