Meh. If you like the spice combination, the roasting is pretty neat, but there is no liquid.

This isn't a recipe I would have clipped but I was looking for a way of preparing carrots to go with a North-African-themed meal and this is what came up when I googled it. It was good.

Yum, yum, yum! I don't know why I've never roasted carrots like this before. This was absolutely delicious. The roasting brings out the sweetness without making the carrots soggy. The spices, lemon and herbs were just the right balance. Quick and easy enough for every day, but with flavors worthy of a special occasion.
