|Middle Eastern Spice Market in Istanbul ( our last cruise)|
My husband and cousins at the Moroccan Restaurant
Recently, my daughter-in law Wendy found a recipe that tastes like the real thing.The recipe starts with fresh whole carrots, Next, you make a marinade from fresh lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, garlic, cilantro and paprika; spices which are all rich in cancer fighting antioxidants. It makes a wonderful side dish or can also be served as an appetizer. I recommend doubling the recipe.
Prep Time: 15-20 minutes
10 whole organic carrots, steamed and sliced into bite size pieces
Juice of one large organic lemon
2 cloves of fresh organic garlic, chopped fine
2-3 teaspoons of ground cumin
1 tsp of paprika
1 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup of fresh cilantro, chopped fine * ( If you don't like cilantro, use parsley)
|Steam Carrots Until Soft ( cover with lid while steaming) |
|Slice Carrots While Warm|
|Pour marinade over warm sliced carrots |
Refridgerate and allow flavors to mingle 4-6 hours
before serving. Serve it cold..
The next time you are having company, why not serve this wonderful recipe along with an eggplant appetizer and Israeli salad? Have a little wine, some gluten free crackers and you have a party.
