Moroccan Carrot Appetizer is one of my favorite recipes; It has an exotic taste, is fast and easy to make, and will impress guests. The first time I ever had this delectable dish was in a Moroccan restaurant, and it was love at first bite. Eat it with warm pita and humus as an appetizer. It is also allergy friendly . It is vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, nut free.
