Roasted Carrots with Cumin

May 9, 2010

This recipe is definitely a keeper! I was looking for something different to do with carrots and turned to Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything. I was intrigued by Roasted Carrots with Cumin. The recipe was so simple, but I had never thought of pairing carrots with cumin seeds. The carrots were a delicious side dish with leftover Slow Cooker “Barbecued” Pork Roast.

We ate the carrots hot, but they can also be served at room temperature—a great make-ahead dish.
