I put down I eat carrots and was told I was wrong' they said the answer was I eat carrot.
There was a mistake with some brackets in the Incubator that I just fixed. Really, the only correct translation for this is "I eat a carrot" (if you wanted to be more literal, you could omit the indefinite article, but then it's not correct English). "I eat carrots" would be "Ithim caréid"

I could also imagine making a carrot cake and, worrying about allergies, asking someone 'do you eat carrot?'. So what's normally a count noun can be coerced into a mass noun interpretation, but that doesn't mean it's the normal usage. But I have no idea how you would express this meaning in Irish.
