just got a delivery of a pun-ny party invite that involves 18 very lovely carrots - tops and all....
tell something fun to do with them....
Moroccan Carrot Salad. There re many vairations on the dish but it is wonderful. For the 1 tsp. cumin in the dressing I find that toasting your cumin seeds in a dry skillet and grinding tghem in a mortar gives you a much richer flavor .
You will need 1 1/4 lbs carrots, peeled, tops removed, cut into quarters and then into sticks. Cook in salted water 10-15 mins. until just tender and drain well.
Heat 4 Tbs. EV olive oil in a large skillet and heat. Add the carrtos, 4 crushed garlic cloves, the ground tsp. of cumin, S&P and saute until the garlic begins to take on a nice gold color. Chill and just beforre serving sprinkle with the juice of half a lemon.
