I don’t like peeling vegetables. It takes awhile, and it’s a pain. When I cooked a bunch of potatoes, I decided to use recipes that didn’t require me to peel them, for the most part.
The other day, I was scraping carrots. There was a gigantic pile of carrot shavings that I tossed out (I don’t compost–live in an apartment with nowhere to do it). What a waste!
It got me to thinking: Do I actually need to scrape carrots? What if I just scraped parts that looked particularly rough or unappetizing?
As long as I wash them, is that enough?
What do you guys think? Is there any reason why peeling carrots is a “must”?
