3 large carrots, peeled

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika

Pinch of ground cinnamon

Pinch of ground cayenne

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 small clove garlic, grated or very finely minced

1/2 cup packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, roughly chopped

Salt and freshly ground black pepper



  1. 1. Using a mandoline slicer or very sharp knife, very thinly slice the carrots on the diagonal about 1/16 inch thick and put them in a bowl. 
  2. 2. Put the cumin, paprika, cinnamon and cayenne in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the spices are fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the oil and swirl the pan to mix. Add the lemon juice and swirl the pan; when the mixture begins to bubble, add the garlic and cook, swirling the pan, for 15 to 20 seconds, until the dressing is very hot. Pour the hot dressing over the carrots and toss with a large rubber spatula until the carrots are evenly coated and have absorbed the dressing. Add the parsley, season with salt and pepper, and toss until combined. 
  3. 3. Serve at room temperature, with harissa, or refrigerate until ready to serve.
