Carrots are tasty, versatile and easy to use cooked or raw. A raw carrot is crunchy, slightly sweet and a popular snack with dip or on-the-go. When carrots are cooked, the sweetness deepens. Boiling or steaming carrots creates a more subtle sweetness, while roasting or grilling adds a sweet caramelized flavour (we love this Roasted Carrot Tart recipe).  Carrots are not only delicious, they are full of nutrients, dietary fibre and antioxidants. Carrots can be carefully cut to offer a texture best suited for each use. For example, grate them for in baking, cut them into sticks for dipping, juliennes for stir fries, rounds for soups and stews, or even spiralise to use as a veggie noodle.
