  • 1 pound fresh carrots cut in slices
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley (fresh)
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander (fresh)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon juice (if not juicy enough, use the juice from an entire lemon)
  • 1 medium size garlic clove, grated
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp pepper powder
  • ¼ tsp salt (adjust quantity if needed)
  • ½ preserved lemon cut in cubes (make sure you take off the seeds)


  • Steam the carrots in a pressure cooker. Alternatively, boil the carrots in a hot pan filled with water. Carrots should be cooked al dente.
  • In a pan on medium heat, put the carrots, the olive oil and garlic.
  • Add the spices, parsley, coriander and lemon juice, preserved lemons and cook for 2 minutes while mixing. You can add a splash of water if it the carrots start to stick to the pan.
  • Reduce the heat and let everything cook for 5 minutes, until there is no liquid in the pan and the carrots are well infused with the spices.
  • You can serve it hot, tepid or cold, depending on your preference, either alone or with toasted bread.
