10 Things to Do With Carrots in Season

Carrots are in season

Here are 10 ways we’re eating and drinking them them:

1. Eat raw – washed, peeled, washed again and chomped on. Want some dipping sauces? Combine plain/ natural yogurt with curry powder and cilantro leaves, to taste

2. Grate and add to sandwich fillings, salads – cooked and raw, stir fries, rice dishes (including Jollof – yes, yes, I know), Pasta sauces etc

  1. I came across your website in search of tomato source in commercial quantity and quality fro the North and North Central as I am into food processing and packaging. I like your blog/site because it is nutritiously healthy…..I started grilling my fresh meats more out of taste for better flavours than health, although, it gives me a better assurance that it is healthier to cook by grilling than frying or boiling as it extracts the oils. I grill with honey, yaji, cinnamon, lemon, crayfish powder, and any other condiment but I always avoid using the cubed seasonings, since I use the primary ingredients contained in it…. I have just fallen in love with basil now, so I am adding that to seasoning list and also for stir fry. If you are making noodles/pasta/white rice please add some diced carrots, green peas, efirin (yes scent leaves) and basil as the last ingredients and savour the aroma 😉

  2. Diced carrot, green beans and onions with indomie noddles just before you turn off the flame, feel the crunchy sensation………….my children luv it.
