Moroccan Chermoula Carrots

These Moroccan Chermoula Carrots are made with perfectly cooked tender carrots that are tossed in a flavorful and easy chermoula sauce! They are a delicious and easy carrot side dish recipe to accompany any meal. We made this dish in our cooking class in Morocco and fell in love with this carrot salad/side dish! This carrot salad is Whole30-compliant, vegan, paleo-friendly, and easy-peasy!

If you read our Morocco recap, you may have seen the amazing pictures from our trip! One of the things we loved the most was a cooking class we took at Riad Fes in Fes. We had the best time making dishes like this Moroccan Eggplant with Chermoula, these Moroccan Carrots, Tagine, and so much more!

Moroccan Chermoula Sauce

This sauce is incredible and SO EASY TO PREPARE. It would be amazing as a chicken marinade, too! It’s backed with nutrient-dense herbs and fresh olive oil and is so yummy!

Carrots are a great healthy vegetable, high in vitamin A and low in calories. Beta-carotene is converted into vitamin A in the body, and is great for things like good vision! One medium carrot contains only 25 calories, though they do have natural sugar making them higher in carbs than many other vegetables.

  • Made the carrots tonight. They were delicious. I made extra sauce which I used on the shrimp I served with the carrots. I used the full amount of oil and added some extra lemon juice because my spices were pungent. I will make these again.
