Cumin Carrots

So when this post gets uploaded on to Pinch of Salt I will be somewhere in the sky between Durban, South Africa and Geneva, Switzerland.  I am going skiing in Val Thorens, France for a week then Paris for 3 days! I am so super excited, although the max temperature while I am there is like -3 C!  Despite the freezing cold I can’t wait for a week of skiing and of course eating!

This post is a continuation of the Red Wine Braised Brisket recipe.  I served this carrots with the brisket and the sweetness of the carrots combined with the cumins makes it a great side to the delicious and soft brisket.  I used baby rainbow carrots from Woolworths because the different colours are so beautiful and adds such a pop to the entire dish.  This is such an easy and quick side to make with any dish!
