Spicy ginger and earthy carrots are a perfect pair in this classic recipe. We call for turmeric in our recipe, which is slightly unconventional, but it adds additional vibrancy and flavor to the dish. For a silky smooth finish we also call for a touch of baking soda, which helps the carrots to fully soften while slow cooking.
Note: If you would like to schedule this meal, but do not want to wait for the broiler to cool before refrigerating, saute ginger, shallot, garlic, turmeric, olive oil, and 1 tsp salt in a small skillet over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes instead of broiling in Step 1.
