Buttery Mint Carrots Recipe

Buttery Mint Carrots Recipe

I reworked an old recipe to blend mint (traditionally a complement to lamb) with buttery-sweet carrots. This quick way of dressing up carrots makes a colorful accompaniment for other meats as well.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 medium carrots, julienned
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh mint or 1/2 teaspoon dried mint


  • 1. In a saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. Add carrots; cook until crisp-tender, about 8 minutes. Drain and set aside. In the same saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the sugar and mint until blended. Return carrots to pan; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until carrots are tender and evenly coated. Yield: 4 servings.
