Haydari with Carrots

(Havuclu Haydari)

Haydari with Carrots
3-4 large carrots, peeled, grated
1-2 garlic cloves, sliced or minced
1/2 tsp mint
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup Creamy (Strained) Yogurt

Walnuts halves
Crushed red pepper (red pepper flakes)

Saute the garlic with olive oil, until the smell comes out. Immediately add grated carrots. Saute for 3-4 minutes at medium heat, stirring from time to time. Season with mint, some salt, pepper, stir. Then let it cool down. Mix it with creamy yogurt. Place in a service plate. Garnish with walnut halves and crushed red pepper. You can serve it with the toasted French baton bread or toasted pide slices.

this was great! since i didn't have a shredder, i just used my peeler - the carrot slices were long and linguini-like, but still delicious :-)
