Paprika, cumin, and cilantro lend a carrot side dish Moroccan flair. Toasting the cumin seeds intensifies their flavor. To toast the seeds, place them in a small, heavy skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, one to three minutes or until they smell toasty. Learn more about cooking with spices in "The Aromatic Kitchen," on page 136.

How to Make It

Place carrots, cumin, and paprika in a large saucepan. Cover with water to just above carrots; bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes or until carrots are just tender; drain. Combine carrots, cilantro, and next 5 ingredients (through garlic) in a large bowl; sprinkle with cheese.

Very good, with a nice spicy warmth. The flavors are an original and delicious way to serve carrots and the whole thing is a very quick side to make.
