Carrots are a versatile vegetable that are delicious when picked straight from farm.

Many people are used to only eating the root but the leaves or tops can also be used! They are great when added to a pesto or blended in a smoothie.

For a smoothie simply puree the tops of 3 large carrots with 1 3/4 cup water (~400 mL), 150 g of baby spinach, a peeled orange, half a mango, and a tablespoon of flaxseed oil together until smoothie. For a colder smoothie try adding a few ice cubes.
