Trader Joe’s sells bags of organic rainbow carrots. The carrots come in all hues of the rainbow: dark red, white, bright yellow and the “ordinary” orange carrots. It is a small splurge, but well worth it in the “wow” factor.
These carrots are low in calories and powerful in vitamin A and antioxidants. Rainbow carrot curls will add a pop of color and a delicious flavor to your plating. Here is the simple technique to create rainbow carrot curls.
Rainbow Carrots, peeled into 3 inch long strips
Create carrot curls using a potato peeler.
For tighter curls, roll and secure with toothpicks.
For looser curls, curl strip loosely and just drop strip into ice water.
Keep in ice water for at least 20 minutes.
Looser curls (that were not secured with toothpicks)
Tighter curls (that were secured with toothpicks)
Blot each curl dry and garnish away!
