Moroccan carrots

Side Serves 4 45 min
This vegetarian side is simple to make and has a lovely depth of flavour. It is good to serve as part of a mezze, or with Moroccan spiced lamb. It's as flavourful warm and at room temperature.

  • juice of 1 orange
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
