Carrots are one of the most popular vegetables in the world. Steamed, raw, boiled, used to make carrot sauce, blended in juices or used in soups… we can’t deny that this is a very versatile vegetable.

Thanks to the fact that they’re full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, carrots are beneficial for our health. They’re even recommended to help in the prevention of some types of cancer, especially breast cancer.

In the culinary world, carrots complement any recipe; with many sweet and salty dishes using it as the main ingredient. Carrot sauce, for example, gives your recipes a beautiful color and a particularly sweet flavor. 

This sauce tastes delicious with both fish and meat. It’s delicate and soft, and it doesn’t overpower the other flavors in the dish. It also offers a completely different aesthetic and adds taste to your dishes.
