Carrots simmered in garlic and honey

  • Mince the garlic, chop the onions and slice the carrots.
  • In a frying pan, brown the garlic and onions in a bit of oil. Add the carrots, salt and pepper, mix and let it simmer uncovered over low heat for 20 minutes.
  • Add a bit of water if necessary during the cooking.
  • Mix the honey and lemon juice, add the rest of the oil plus a small teaspoon of curcuma and cumin.
  • Add ½ glass of water and pour into the frying pan.
  • Cook for 5 minutes over low heat.
