Sweet Carrots


  • 15-20 young organic carrots
  • 1½ teaspoons organic ghee
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Young leaves parsley for garnish


  1. Peel and wash the carrots. Since these carrots have so much sweetness, we add only a little extra taste.
  2. In a frying pan, heat the ghee on medium-high and add the carrots — I do not cut these as they are not very large, but you can cut them into approximately 2" long matchsticks.
  3. Stir so that all the carrots get some of the ghee. Add salt and lower the heat slightly.
  4. Cover the pan tightly for a few minutes so that the carrots "sweat" a little but do not become limp.
  5. Take off the cover and add the cumin. Stir once.
  6. Turn off the heat, garnish with parsley leaves and enjoy with a fresh chapati!

You can add fresh young asparagus to this if you want — it is delicious! Just remember, the vegetables should not become too soft and limp. You want a good amount of crunch to them! The asparagus can be cut on a bias in lengths of about 2" each.
