Recipe by Sharon123

A wonderful way to fix the ordinary carrot! Influenced by African spices, try this! This recipe may be halved easily. Adapted from Foodservice Recipes. This is a Middle Eastern/African recipe.

Delicious way of preparing carrots, the only changes I made was the serving size (1.5 cups) and type of mustard (I used grained mustard as I ran out of Dijon mustard). Thank you Sharon123 for another wonderful recipe
