I was looking for something to do with the frozen carrots I had, when I found this recipe on Eating Well. I decided to adapt it to a slow cooker to see how it turned out and I really liked the results.

Healthier, spicy, tasty and easy! I didn’t find it hot. It had a nice bite to it and was very far from bland.

Makes a great side dish for many different meals.

Ingredients
  1. 12oz bag frozen carrots
  2. 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  3. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 2 teaspoons paprika
  5. 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  6. 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  7. 1/4 cup water
  8. 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
  9. Salt, to taste (optional)
  10. 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or 2 Tablespoons dried
Instructions
  1. Coat inside of 2 quart or less slow cooker with olive oil. Add all ingredients and cook on high for 45 minutes. Turn to low and cook an additional 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. My tiny 1 quart slow cooker doesn’t have a high setting, so I cook it for 4-5 hours or until the carrots are tender. Stir about once an hour.
Notes
  1. Using blanched carrots? Check a little earlier for tenderness.
  2. Using fresh carrots? Cut into 1/4 slices and add an hour to cooking time.
