The most taxing part of making this nutty-tasting side dish is cutting the carrots. Don't obsess about a perfect dice; the most important thing is for the carrot pieces to be the same size, for even cooking.

Toast the nuts in a small, dry skillet over medium heat for a few minutes, until they are fragrant and lightly browned, stirring often to keep them from burning. This dish goes well alongside lamb or chicken.
