In this video I show you the difference (touch + smell + color AND nutritional content) between a carrot from our garden & one from the local farmers' market.
Carrots are a wonderful vegetable, they are rich in carbohydrates, vitamin A, betacarotene & other stuff.
Moreover, you can do almost anything with them: you can have them raw, cooked, in juices, in cakes...
The only thing I haven't seen yet is a carrot ice cream! - but other than that you can use them in so many different ways.
How to make the most of the nutrition carrots provide?
1. to enhance vitamin A absorption, make sure you put some extra virgin olive oil or ghee on them, as vitamin A is fat soluble.
2. to enhance betacarotene absorption, cook them for a while. I like them with lemon & rosemary!
