Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to a low oven of 320-degrees F.

Step 2

Place your carrots on a cookie sheet and roast the carrots with a little olive oil drizzled over them for a good hour. Your carrots should be cooked through (crisp tender is preferred) and caramelized here and there.

Step 3

Remove from oven and set aside.

Step 4

To a dry skillet (un-buttered) large enough to fit your carrots (if you don't have a skillet that is large enough, you can repeat the process twice in the same skillet), toast the cumin seeds for a couple of minutes to bring out the cumin flavor.

Step 5

Add the butter to the pan and add the carrots; toss with the cumin seeds until all ingredients cover carrots evenly.

Step 6

Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.

We really loved these carrots. We didn't have as many as I thought so I reduced the cooking time. I made these and then layed down for a nap. My son ate a lot while I was asleep so there wasn't many to take a picture of.

Wonderful flavor and so easy. Need to reduce the roasting time a carrots got a little overcharred. But still were wonderful.

WOW! I love carrots and I loved this recipe with cumin! The cooking method is perfect and the addition of the roasted spice (I think caraway or crushed coriander) made this recipe real special. Thanks!

I scaled the recipe down for 2 servings and sliced my carrots into rounds then roasted them for 30 minutes; they turned out perfectly. Great tasting side dish!!
