Spicy Braised Carrots

Spicy Braised Carrots

Here is a vegetables recipe I used to make for a very long time since I inherited the cast iron pot of my grandmother. I love this pot for simmering vegetables and especially baby carrots.

Ingredients you will need for the braised carrots

For 4 plates:

  • 8-10 beautiful carrots (organic if possible)
  • 2 shallots
  • 1-2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Ground cumin (about 1 teaspoon)
  • Fresh or frozen cilantro (a dose according to taste)
  • Salt and pepper

Cooking Instructions for the braised carrots

Slice thinly the peeled carrots.
Sauté the chopped shallots in olive oil.
Add carrots and stir well.
Cook for 15-20 min, stirring regularly.
Add cumin and coriander – depending on the desired intensity of flavor.
Add salt and pepper.
Continue cooking over low heat, stirring regularly.
Carrots should stay a bit crunchy while being cooked.
Use this dish to accompany meat, fish.

Small variations:

  • Add 1 to 2 cloves garlic, crushed at the beginning of cooking.
  • Add thinly diced bacon.
  • You can avoid the cumin and coriander and add parsley instead.
