Cumin really tastes great on carrots. Spices them up just right!
- 1 lb baby carrots
- 1 cup apple juice
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 2 teaspoons parsley
- Steam the carrots in the apple juice in a covered saucepan, on med-low heat until crisp-tender.
- Toss with remaining ingredients.
Cooking carrots in apple juice is a wonderfull idea! I didn't know if I should have drained the carrots before adding the other ingredients, but I thought it made more sense. I substituted butter, added salt and pepper, and used fresh chopped parsley. The cumin-carrot-honey-parsely flavor was wonderfull but I think it needs another layer of flavor. I added some fresh lemon juice, and that worked well very well. I think next time I would add salt to the apple juice and that might do the trick. Thanks Inez for another addition to my cookbook!
Always another way to cook carrots and this is excellent. The cumin combined with the flavor imparted from the applejuice gives a subtle yet different flavor that does not detract from the carrots. I did not add sugar as my carrots are very sweet and using apple juice to steam them I felt any more sugar would be too much. After steamiming them I drizzled the oil over the carrots, mixed well then added the cumin and fresh chopped parsley - Nice color presentation and great flavor Thanks Inez for a winner
Very good, Thanks!
