    In the Sephardic tradition, carrots with almonds is a delicious side dish and we like it as an accompaniment to the Thanksgiving meal. From Vegetarian Celebration: Menus for Holidays and Other Festive Occasions.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 teaspoon bland oil
    • 1 lb fresh carrot, peeled, thinly sliced into matchsticks (the best quality carrots you can find)
    • 1/4 cup apple juice (or apple cider)
    • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic chives
    • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
    • 1 dash salt
    • 1 dash white pepper


    1. 1
      In a large skillet heat the pan on medium heat.
    2. 2
      Add the butter and melt. Be careful not to burn the butter.
    3. 3
      Next add the oil.
    4. 4
      Saute the carrots, stirring frequently until they start to turn golden and are crisp-tender about 10-12 minutes.
    5. 5
      Do not allow the skillet to turn dry- adding a little apple juice if necessary.
    6. 6
      When the carrots are crisp-tender add the remaining apple juice and saute mixture until liquid is absorbed.
    7. 7
      Finally, stir in the lemon juice, chives, toasted almonds, salt and white pepper.

      Umm sorry to mess too but I used fresh garlic instead of garlic chives like another reviewer. I did however do it correctly on the stove top! I used sweet (unsalted) butter, canola oil (yes I wish there was an alternative), about 1 tbs organic apple cider vinegar and water in place of the liquid, blanched slivered almonds I toasted in a dry pan, sea salt, plus the rest of the ingredients. Served along side Beef Stew in Berbere Sauce and Fragrant Apricot Rice. Made for APRIL/MAY 2012 NA/ME TAG!

      I admit to seriously messing with this lovely dish, mainly due to running late and being very lazy! I microwaved the carrots for a couple of minutes, then sauteed with some garlic, salt, pepper, the almonds and some white wine til the liquid was gone - very nice! I promise I'll try it the right way sometime with the proper ingredients!
