"Carrot hastily cooked may still have soil uncleaned off the vegetable."
Carrots and mint are made for each other and this is a quick and easy recipe that goes great with almost any cuisine. Fresh mint works well also and you would want to use about a half teaspoon or so.
There are dozens of varieties of mint but the two you are most likely to find in the market are spearmint and peppermint. As the name implies the peppermint is spicier with a more pungent flavor. Its leaves are brighter green with a purple tinge to the spines and stems.
Because spearmint doesn't contain menthol it is the milder of the two. It has larger grayish-green leaves.
