Moroccan Roasted Carrots with Couscous

I made this Moroccan Roasted Carrots recipe to serve with some special goat’s cheese that we were given as a gift by visitors. I remembered the gorgeous sweetly spiced carrot salads that we had eaten whilst on holiday in Marrakech and made my own version of one.
