The refrigerator light goes on...

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.


Minted Carrots

Servings: 2 | Serving size: about 1 cup carrots

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

This recipe can easily be multiplied and makes good leftovers. Serve leftovers chilled or reheat very gently.


Place the water in a large stock pot over high heat. When the water is at a shiver (almost boiling) add the carrots.

Cook them for about 5 - 7 minutes, then remove them from the pan to a strainer or a paper towel.

Heat the olive oil and butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the carrots, salt, mint and pepper. Cook, tossing frequently, for about another 2 - 3 minutes and serve.
