Moroccan Bean and Carrot Salad

I acquired this recipe from a friend last summer. I have really enjoyed this salad. It has an exotic and spicy flavor. Eating this dish is like taking your taste buds on a safari. :)

Moroccan Bean & Carrot Salad

1 lb. Carrots, Shredded
1 Small Onion, Sliced Thinly
2 Tblsp. Coconut or Olive Oil
1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 tsp. Curry or Cumin Powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Black Pepper
1 1/2 cups Black Beans, Cooked and Drained or 1 can of Black Beans Drained
2 Tblsp. Lemon Juice

In a large skillet, over high heat, saute onion in oil for 2 minutes. Onions will begin to caramelize. 
Add carrots and seasonings. Saute another 2 minutes. Remove from heat. 
Add black beans and lemon juice. Stir well and enjoy!

That looks really good! I'm not sure if I've had curry or cumin powder before...or if I have it's been a really long time ago, so I'm not sure what they taste like. This recipe sounds easy enough, so maybe we can give it a try sometime. :)

Hello Sunshine Country! Cummin powder has a strong flavor and smell that I would describe as earth-like. It is used a lot in Mexican food and I grew up cooking with it and eating food flavored with cummin. When I was little I didn't like it particularly, but it grew on me. Your brother doesn't care for cummin if it is a defining flavor of a dish. It is just a little over bearing to him. That being said, I make this salad for my lunch. :)

Curry powder is a combination of seasonings and it is usually more pleasant tasting than cummin. I have used both in this recipe I liked it just as well both times.

Glad you enjoyed the pictures!
This is a very interesting salad. You either think it is gross or delicious. It is hard to describe. :)
