Carrot Recipes That Make This Root Vegetable Worth Eating

Seriously.

Carrots aren't the most exciting veggie out there. For many of us, they were one of our first foods, fed to us as a pureed mush before we could even talk. After a lifetime of eating this root vegetable it's no wonder that few people get excited about cooking with them. But here's the thing: carrots are wonderfully sweet, very affordable and oh-so-good for you. You just have to cook them in a new way. We have those recipes for you.

Prepared into beautiful shaved salads, roasted with herbed creme fraiche and snuck into pork buns, these dishes prove that carrots deserve a spot on your plate.
