  1. Wash and peel your carrots. Slice on the diagonal.
  2. Saute in a generous amount of olive oil.
  3. Add a generous amount of crushed or chopped garlic.
  4. Add salt and spices. Cumin is a good bet. Coriander, ground ginger and cayenne are good too, alone or in combination.
  5. Stop cooking when the carrots are tender but still firm. This shouldn't take more than a few minutes if your pan isn't really full.
  6. Add chopped fresh herbs. Try cilantro, parsley or mint. Try one or a combination.
  7. Add a generous amount of fresh lemon juice.
  8. Taste. Adjust salt and lemon juice as needed.
