The trinity of North African seasonings, cumin, coriander and paprika, lends exotic appeal to this simple carrot preparation.

6 servings, 1/2 cup each | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, paprika, cumin and coriander; cook, stirring, until fragrant but not browned, about 20 seconds. Add carrots, water, lemon juice and salt; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until almost tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Uncover and simmer, stirring often, until the carrots are just tender and the liquid is syrupy, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in parsley. Serve hot or at room temperature.
