Cumin Carrots 3

Cumin Carrots

Servings: 2 people
Carbohydrate Serves: 1 per person
(1 carbohydrate serve = 15 grams of total carbohydrate)

So if you’ve been following my gestational diabetes friendly recipes you would probably see a pattern. I am a bit stuck on smoked paprika, tarragon and cumin. It’s because I really appreciate a spice or herb that can reveal itself to you in ways you weren’t expecting and cumin is a great one for that. This easy and fragrant side dish is great with my Moroccan Inspired Meat Loaf or you could use it as the base for a salad. Go wild! (Main carbohydrate containing ingredients are listed in bold.)

Ingredients 

  • 4 medium carrots, peeled, halved lengthways and sideways
  • 1 teaspoon light olive oil
  • ¬ľ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Juice of 1 small lemon

Cook carrots in a medium saucepan of boiling water until just cooked then drain off water. (Alternatively you could steam them.)

Return to pan and add oil, parsley, cumin, lemon juice and toss well. Serve warm.

Post-GDM tip: After draining, return carrots to pan. Add remaining ingredients including 1 tablespoon of honey and toss well.
