This is an Indian dish I had while visiting a French family in the Luberon Valley. So I guess it's a French-Indian side dish. I love it and make it all the time.

5+ for taste but I would rate it 1 for cooking instructions. There is no waaaay that you can roast carrots (even baby ones - which I used)at 375 degrees for 20 min. I followed the recipe exactly until it came to the roasting time - I steamed the carrots for 5 minutes - then I roasted all the veggies in a well preheated 500 degree oven for 20 min. I cut the recipe to serve 4 people - a mistake - Ron and I ate it all in one sitting! Fellow chefs you must try this one!!! So different. Thanks submitter. Read More

I was so excited to try this recipe but unfortunatley it was not very good. My husband and I are adventurous eaters but we just didn't think the flavors went together very well. I'm not sure what went wrong. Sigh... Read More

Outstanding! I would never have thought of this on my own. I cut the baby carrots into thirds and boiled them until barely tender. Then I mixed them with the grapes onion cumin and olive oil. I also added a little sea salt before baking the mix for about 10 minutes. The grapes still had some pop to them and the onions were done. I sprinkled some fresh parsley on top and it looked beautiful. The perfect fall side dish. Read More

Good but I think the cooking time could do with some adjustment. The baby carrots took about 30 mins to really soften by which time some of the grapes and onion had burned. Next time I'll add them after 15 mins so that they keep a little bit of bite. But thanks for a nice recipe Matt! Read More

It was pretty good. Better than anyone expected. I cut the carrots into thirds and pre-boiled them for a few minutes. Read More

Fantastic. I made a couple of revisions: I didn't have any grapes so I used raisins and I added about 1/2 cup of chopped onion and a little basil on top. It was very tasty (of course I never met a carrot I didn't like). Read More

What an outstanding recipe! This was so easy to create with only five ingredients and no prep work. I added some fresh ground black pepper as well as some sea salt. It was tremendous beautiful to look at and a wonderful accompaniment to our steak this evening. Cannot wait to make again. Read More

I wish I would have read the other reviews before I made this. The carrots were way under-done. The grapes were delicious though. Read More

This is gorgeous - and so quick and easy. We had a dinner party last night and my husband went shopping for me yesterday morning - but could only find a mixed pack of vegetables - baby carrots sweet corn and asparagus. So I put the sweet corn in with the carrots - and it worked really well. Everyone was most impressed! Read More
