I made this to go along side a Morroccan Chicken dish. It would be wonderful with ham or lamb as well if you enjoy a bit of spice.

A very pleasant dish. I was pleased at how well the spices enhanced the flavor of the carrots without overwhelming them. Thanks for posting!

Wow! Wouldn't change a thing when making these great-tasting carrots ~ The indicated spices really take the nice taste (in my opinion) of carrots to a whole new level, & this is a recipe I'm definitely keeping! They'll definitely be on at least one of my next holiday tables! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits tag]
