|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.
I adapted the recipe to suit our tastes.

The tangy lemony marinade mingles with the sweet carrots and spices to create a memorable side dish that can be enjoyed by those who are gluten free and vegan. 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'll have a light but filling Middle Eastern style meal.
