  • Tbsp Measuring Spoon
  • Casserole Pan with Lid
  • Orange Zester
  • Wooden Spoon (or similar)


  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 0.5 tsp Cumin
  • 1 Orange Juiced and zested
  • 3 Garlic Cloves The skin on and squashed slightly
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 0.5 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 600 g Heirloom Carrots
  • 3 Sprigs Thyme


  • Prepare your ingredients and get your equipment ready.
  • Heat the oil in a pan on medium-high heat, add the cumin and cook for a minute until fragrant.
  • Add the orange juice, orange zest, garlic cloves, honey, salt, pepper and water to the pan and stir until combined. Turn the heat to high and bring the liquid to a boil.
    Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium for a gentle simmer.
  • Carefully, add the carrots to the pan. Give them a toss in the liquid and then throw in the thyme. Put the lid on, stirring them every 5 minutes, so as the liquid thickens it starts to cling to the carrots, rather than the bottom of the pan!
    Cook for 15 minutes or until the carrots have softened but still have a nice bite.
  • Remove the lid off the pan and cook the sweet liquid down until it becomes thick and syrupy. About 5 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the thyme sprigs and garlic skins (as it will be hot). Serve and enjoy!
