Carrots provide the highest content of vitamin A of all the vegetables. Brightly orange colored carrots contain the pigments known as carotenoids and flavonoids, two important phytochemicals and natural bioactive compounds found in plant foods that provide several antioxidant benefits and defenses against cancer.
Carrots are one of the most common ingredients found in the kitchen as well as one of the most versatile and fundamental ingredients for culinary use in recipes both sweet and savory. Diced carrots, along with celery and onions are a key ingredient (known as mirepoix) in soup stocks and broths. While basic stocks and soups rarely achieve their well-rounded flavoring without a carrot, carrots fill many other recipes along with many other ingredients, included simple roasted vegetable medleys along with other winter root vegetables. Carrots are a quintessential ingredient in baked goods such as bread and muffins. Carrots are eaten raw in crudites, pureed into sauces, boiled and fried. Carrots pair well with almonds, bacon, butter, celery, cheeses, especially cheddar, parmesan and pecorino, cinnamon, cream, ginger, parsley, potatoes, mushrooms, shallots, tomatoes and vinegar, especially red and white wine. Carrots will keep in cool, dry storage for up to a month.
