Algerian Cooked Carrot Salad

As-Salamu Alaikunna Sisters / Greetings Reader,

I found this recipe a while ago....as with most recipes that I pin, this got put to the back of my mind and for a time I think I forgot about it altogether!

At the moment for no particular reason, other than husband brought home carrots when we already have some I have an abundance of carrots sat in my fridge. Rather than bake them into carrot cake or any other sweet right away (I have plans in the making) I remembered this salad and gave it a go.

The carrot flavour in this salad is mild and sweet due to the carrots being cooked first but also because you get a punchy flavour from the raw garlic, lemon, cumin and olive oil dressing.

If you don't like or despair to have the lingering after taste of raw garlic, I suggest you finely chop the garlic then steam / boil it along with your carrots although it's much more beneficial for your body especially your heart when eaten raw.

Algerian Cooked Carrot Salad

recipe adapted slightly from tastingspoons
Serves 2

Ingredients

 
250grams carrots, washed and peeled
1 garlic clove - I used a small one and crushed it but if you prefer use a regular size garlic clove and finely chop it this will make it less pungent and like I said above you can always cook the garlic if you prefer the flavour even milder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon coriander or parsley, finely chopped 
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin - this is your seasoning but feel free to substitute with salt & pepper
1/4 teaspoon brown sugar

Method

 
Cut carrots at an angle to your desired thickness, mine were about 1/4cm-1/2cm thick, steam for 15-20minutes or until they are cooked through but not mushy.
 
Place cooked carrots in a heat proof bowl and leave to cool slightly.
 
Make up the dressing in a separate bowl and then pour onto your carrots.
 
Served best at room temperature but if you like you can chill it in the fridge and serve it cold.
