Thanksgiving Recipe: Chile de Arbol- And Orange Glazed-Carrots
I'm digging this simple, but very flavorful, carrot dish from FIG Santa Monica. It'd be great on the Thanksgiving table, since root vegetables spiced up in new and fun ways is, I think, the secret to an excellent Thanksgiving feast. Plus it's vegetarian! Add herbs and slices of preserved lemon to the finished dish (as pictured above) if you like, but it's delicious without them!
