Serves: 4 – 6

Prep Time: 10 min

Cooking Time: 20 – 25 min


  • 500g carrots, peeled and trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Ras el Hanout spice blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons roasted silvered almonds, or pistachios roughly chopped
  • 1/2 bunch coriander or parsley chopped


Step 1: Preheat oven

Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 220°C.
Line a baking pan with baking paper

Step 2: Prepare the carrots

Slice the carrots diagonally into 1.5cm thick pieces. This will allow for even roasting and a delightful presentation.


Step 3: Toss the carrots in spice mixture

Place the sliced carrots in a large bowl. Drizzle them with olive oil, then sprinkle the Moroccan spice blend over the carrots. Toss well, ensuring that the carrots are evenly coated with the spices.

Step 4: Roast the carrots

Transfer the spiced carrots to the prepared baking sheet, spreading them out in a single layer.


Roast in the preheated oven for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the carrots are tender and slightly caramelized.


Give them a gentle toss halfway through cooking for even browning.

Step 5: Add lemon juice and garnish

Remove the roasted carrots from the oven and drizzle them with fresh lemon juice.


This will add a refreshing tang to balance the spices. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro or parsley and the chopped nuts for a vibrant finish.

Step 5: Serve and enjoy

Transfer the Moroccan spiced roasted carrots to a serving platter and serve them hot as a side dish or as part of a larger Moroccan-inspired meal.


They pair beautifully with grilled meats, couscous, or as a topping for salads.
