Carrot Salad with Cumin, Feta and Mint

serves 2-4

400g carrots
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 crushed clove of garlic
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon harissa (optional)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
100g feta, crumbled or chopped into bits

Peel the carrots and grate them into a serving bowl.

Heat the oil in a small pan. Once it is hot sauté the garlic, caraway, cumin, paprika, harissa and sugar in the oil until fragrant, about one to two minutes. Remove from heat and add the lemon juice and a pinch of salt.

Pour the mixture over the carrots and mix. Mix in the herbs and the feta. Very yummy.
