Caramelized Cumin-Roasted Carrots


Aromatic cumin seeds add Indian flair to this simple side dish.

This year for Easter, I remembered a super simple side dish that I hadn’t made in yeeeeears. This recipe is very basic, but it packs a ton of flavor.

It went beautifully with the lamb that my father-in-law made (plus all of the other dishes we both contributed!).

This is perfect side dish for any roasted meat or Indian-inspired dinner. Absolutely delicious!
