reading the recipe I would add a pinch of cinnamon as well. It would bring the more normal flavors of cayenne and cumin together in the warm flavors of morrocco

These have a pleasant flavor. After keeping in the refrigerator all night they taste like carrots with garlic(which is a good flavor but not what I was expecting. I was expecting something more exotic. Also it was very hard to get the carrots done(fork tender). My DD and I were making these. We followed the directions exactly until the carrots with all the added spices are supposed to get tender. They were very hard. I think on step 2 the pan should have been covered and maybe they would have had a better chance to getting done. So at step 4 I added a little water and brought to another boil and put the lid on and simmered for 3-4 minutes and finally they were getting softer.WE then continued with the directions. I think the cook times and cooking directions just need a little work. made for Newest Tag 2007
