Moroccan Spiced Roasted Carrots Recipe
The Moorish influence in southern Spanish cuisine can still be found today. One of the most popular dishes is zanahorias asadas Morunos. These roasted carrots are tangy, sweet and spicy and deliciously caramelized. They are a perfect tapa pairing with pinchos Morunos, a side for humble roast chicken or with whatever you are serving up!

Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix all spices together in a medium sized bowl, add carrots and olive oil and stir well to combine. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and add spiced carrots. Season with salt and pepper, cover with foil and roast for 10 minutes. Stir carrots and continue roasting uncovered for 15-20 minutes more or until the carrots are tender and slightly browned,


While carrots are cooking, add lemon juice, orange juice and honey to a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat and keep warm.


When carrots are done, arrange on a platter or individual plates and spoon over honey and juice mixture. Garnish with crushed almonds and mint.
