Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    carrots (1-1/2 pounds)
    olive oil (1/4 cup)
    garlic (3 cloves)
    vegetable broth (1/2 cup)
    cinnamon (1/4 tsp)
    nutmeg (1/4 tsp)
    cayenne pepper (pinch+)
    salt (1/2 tsp)

Tips

Do not add salt if using canned vegetable stock.
I used Cajun Spice Mix instead replacing cayenne pepper, with a great result (additional herb, black pepper).


Directions

Braising method: 9x13 baking dish with foil cover.
Pre-heat oven to 375F.

1. Mix spices, oil and warm vegetable stock with whisk in small bowl.
2. Trim and peel carrots, slice lengthwise in 3 inch pieces. Quarter the larger ends to make equal size pieces.
3. Spread carrots in even layer in greased baking dish, cover with mixed braising liquid, and cover tightly with foil.
4. Bake for 45 minutes, remove foil, test for tenderness, then bake uncovered another 15 minutes to get a glazed mahogany brown carrot dish.

Serving Size: makes four servings
