Sweet and Spicy Moroccan Carrots

Morrocon Carrots

The sweet and spicy Moroccan carrots are roasted instead of boiled, transforming this dish from a simple side salad to a unique side dish. Add a bit of honey for a sweet holiday touch. 

Replace the cumin, red pepper flakes, honey, salt and pepper with Jamie Geller Chraime.
