I’ve made these Moroccan carrots with lentils as a main dish on it’s own and also as a side dish along with a number of other dishes to share with a larger gathering. It’s good both ways! The lentils make it filling and hearty, so it really can stand on it’s own.
It also can be served warm or room temperature – this is up to you. I personally like it at room temperature.
For a family style meal, place all the lentils on a big platter and top with the carrots in the middle. Drizzle the tahini sauce over top and sprinkle with some extra parsley and cilantro.
This dish is perfect for a summery mezze-style meal to share with friends and family. Here are some other dishes you can serve along with this one to create a full menu:
Hummus (topped with some of the extra chermoula!) with pita and veggies
Grilled summer squash topped with Muhammara
Salad with mixed greens, shishito peppers, cubed peaches, cucumbers, and crushed coriander
Grilled eggplants with tahini sauce
However you choose to serve it, I hope you enjoy this recipe!!
