      • cloves garlic, finely chopped or pressed
      • tablespoons olive oil
      • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, or to taste
      • 1 teaspoon ginger
      • 1 teaspoon turmeric
      • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
      • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
      • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
      • 1/8 teaspoon ras el hanout, or to taste, optional
      • 2 to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, or cilantro, plus more for optional garnish
      • 4 to 5 carrots, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch thick sticks
      • 1 cup water
      • 2 to 3 teaspoons honey, or to taste
      • 2 cups cooked or canned chickpeas, drained
      • 1 or 2 small chile peppers, optional
      • 1/4 cup golden raisins, optional


      1. Gather the ingredients.
      2. In the base of a Tajine or in a large skillet with a lid, sauté the onions and garlic in the olive oil over medium-low heat for several minutes.
      3. Add the salt, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper, cayenne pepper, ras el hanout, parsley or cilantro, carrots, and the water.
      4. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, then continue cooking, covered, until the carrots are nearly cooked to desired tenderness. In a skillet, this may take up to 25 minutes, in a Tajine a bit longer.
      5. Stir in the honey and add the chickpeas and optional chile peppers and raisins. Continue simmering until the chickpeas are heated through and the sauce is reduced and thick.
