Sweet Minty Carrots

Well, we've had a computer crash here at the TIP living-room headquarters, and my photo editing software is out of commission for an indeterminate length of time, possible weeks. Have no fear! I will do my best to continue posting simple and delicious meals in these hard times, even if it means mooching off Scott's access to the University art department computer labs. There's lots to look forward to, including sweet Thai cucumbers, magic shell mango, and a report from the upcoming TIP party and potluck!

For today, I bring you a ridiculously fast recipe I discovered years ago to jazz up plain carrots. The raisins bring out the carrot's natural sweetness and the citrus and mint liven up this fancy-flavored raw food snack. Enjoy!

4-Ingredient Minty Carrots
Total Kitchen Time: 5 minutes. Serves 1.

2 mint leaves, minced
1 large carrot, grated or julienned
juice from 1/3 lemon
small handful raisins

Toss and eat! No sharing!


  1. Yum, I love raw carrots, and this sounds really refreshing, Terita. How did you get such a nice julienne cut? Mine never look like that!
    p.s. 'Gimp' is a free online photo correction program that is kind of like Photoshop, etc.???

  2. Oh yeah, I've heard of Gimp... thankfully my computer is up and running again sooner than I anticipated. But I'll remember if for next time.

    As for the julienned carrots, I just made obsessively careful cuts. :)
