READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Engrossed

This is adapted from Claudia Roden's "The New Book of Middle Eastern Food". I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor combos. It tastes like a very fresh carrot cake without all the work...and it's healthy!

If I could give this more than 5 STARS for presentation, I would ~ When this dish of ribboned carrots is finished it looks OUTSTANDING! Being the raisin person that I am, I added more! HOWEVER, another time I'd like to use dried cranberries instead of the raisins, just to see who it'd taste ~ or half cranberries & half golden raisins for the yellow, orange & red colors! Anyway, thanks for posting this very nice recipe!!
