Broiled Cumin Carrots


To pair with the Halibut in Brown Butter recipe that I stole from Laura Calder, I have included a recipe that I only partially stole: her Cumin Carrots… but I suggest that you broil them, because they cook a bit faster that way and the have a nice crunchy brown skin that pairs well with the carrots.


  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: ~8 minutes


  • small bowl for mixing
  • wooden spoon
  • oven or toaster oven – set to broil with broil pan 2-3 inches from flame
  • wooden spatula or tongs


1 handful baby carrots
olive oil, for drizzling
1 teaspoons cumin seed, lightly crushed
1 pinch salt and 1 pinch pepper


  1. Heat oven or toaster oven to broil.
  2. In a small bowl coat baby carrots with olive oil, crushed cumin sees and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Once oven is hot, and carrots to a broil pan and cook for about 4 minutes on each side until carrots are nice and brown.
  4. Serve with Halibut with Brown Butter and Lentils with Olives.
