Moroccan carrots are a fairly ubiquitous dish, and with good reason. The common thread throughout the many variations is the combination of sweet, earthy carrots, tart lemon juice, a luxurious amount of olive oil, and the perfect blend of spices.
This version adapted from Zahav is a genius take on the recipe, using the liquid in which the carrots cook as a super carrot-y addition to the dressing. Served chilled, these carrots are a great accompaniment to a grilled meat or as an addition to a mezze platter. And, if you're looking for an easy make-ahead side dish for your Thanksgiving dinner that's a little off the beaten path, try this one!
