Moroccan-Spiced Roasted Carrots by The Minimalist Baker

We make Mediterranean-inspired bowls quite often, and I love adding a hearty vegetable to the mix for even more texture and flavour.

And these Moroccan-spiced carrots are just the thing I crave!

In addition to being delicious, these roasted carrots are quick and easy to make, requiring just 30 minutes, 1 pan, and 9 ingredients (which are mostly spices).

How to Make Roasted Carrots

If you’ve never eaten perfectly roasted carrots, you’re in for a treat!

The following are our top tips for achieving tender, caramelised, and flavourful roasted carrots:

  • Cut evenly: The more evenly you cut the pieces, the more evenly they will cook.
  • Cooking time and temperature: We recommend cooking at 375 Fahrenheit (190 C) for 20-25 minutes, or until tender and browned on the edges. This temperature allows the carrots to brown nicely while also cooking through without burning.
  • Spices: In addition to being packed with antioxidants, spices are a great way to add flavour!

I’m drawn to Moroccan spices because they’re smoky, spicy, and complex, meaning they play perfectly with the sweet, caramelised flavour the carrots take on when roasted.

But you could also switch up the flavour profile in this recipe and use curry powder, shawarma, or your favorite spice blend!
