Carrots can be a bit boring, but the dressing and spices in this recipe give a tangy flavor to the carrots. Great with any grilled meat.


  • 6 medium sized carrots
  • Salt
  • ½ tsp brown sugar
  • 1 minced red onion
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Olive oil
  • Dash of ground turmeric
  • Dash of ground cumin
  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Extra olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


Wash, peel and cut the carrots into thin slices. Steam or cook in a little salted water until just tender. Drain and set aside.

Heat a little olive oil in a skillet and over low heat sauté the onion and garlic until soft. Add the turmeric, cumin, brown sugar, parsley and lemon. Add a little more olive oil if necessary. Mix through and pour over the carrots, season with salt and pepper and set aside for at least 1 hour for the flavors to blend. Serve.
