I have to admit to being guilty of having neglected the blog recently. Frankly, it is very hard for me to be working on the post at the moment. I suppopse I am kind of fed up with working on the computer all days. Having a demanding job, where I spend all day working on a computer must have ended like that. Well let us assume that it was vacation even if I did not go away this summer. Well, let me make a new start and start posting some stuff. I start with these wonderful, aromatic and full of flavor carrots roasted with some Moroccan spices.
Seems that my all time favorite cuisine is Mediterranean one coming from all over the region. I especially love the taste of these carrots which are full of musky taste of coriander and cumin. The taste was brightened with the lemon and sweetened with honey (maple syrup for vegan). Extremely complex flavor.
Wash the carrots, peel and cut lenghtwise in half. Place the carrots in a baking dish, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and add some ginger. In a mortar grind the coriander with cumin and the garlic. Add the paste to the carrots, together with a drizzle of lemon juice and honey. Mix well and roast in the 325F(180C) oven for 30minutes. In the meantime chop the preserved lemon or zest the lemon and remove the arils from the pomegranate. Once out of the oven place the carrots on the plates. Season with more lemon and oilve oil. Sprinkle with lemon zest, pommegranate and sesame seeds. Add some cilantro leaves before serving.
