Grated Sauteed Carrots

Makes 6-8-servings as a side dish.

I find that carrots have become a neglected vegetable, so I was determined to create a dish that looks good, tastes good and is easy to make.


  • 1 pound carrots, 2 large ones
  • 3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ cup loosely packed flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Peel the carrots, trim and discard the ends. Grate coarsely in a food processor fitted with a medium attachment.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Add the garlic and sauté, over low heat, for a minute.
  3. Add paprika, cumin and all the carrots.
  4. Cook over medium to low heat, covered for 10 minutes.
  5. Stir in parsley and season to taste with vinegar, salt and pepper.
