Spicy Carrot Side Dish
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
2 Tblspns lemon juice
3 Tblspns extra virgin olive oil
0.5 tspn chilli powder
2 tspns sweet paprika
1 tspn turmeric
1 tspn ground cumin
1 tspn ground coriander powder
1/2 – 1 Tblspn or less of honey (start with the lesser amount and add more if needed)
salt and black pepper
green coriander leaves (optional)
Peel and slice the carrots. Cook them until tender but so that they maintain a little bite still. You can boil or steam them. Drain them well.
Add the other ingredients to a bowl and stir to mix. Pour over the carrots and gently mix until the carrots are coated with the spice mix.
Taste for flavours and add more chilli, lemon juice, honey, salt and/or pepper as required.
Transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves if desired. Drizzle with a little olive oil.
