Eating carrots with or without their skin usually comes down to personal preference. Unpeeled carrots can taste a little bit bitter, and that’s why some people avoid them, but there are several types of dishes that will do you more good if you use unpeeled carrots to prepare them.
Peeling the carrots that you’re planning to roast is a waste of time and energy. Your carrots will get a rich flavor after being roasted, with or without their skin on. You won’t be able to tell the difference anyway, so just give them a good wash before roasting them.
Juicing your carrots without their skin is wasting all the good nutrients that they have in store. Most of them are actually contained in their skin, so there’s no need to peel them, as long as you wash and scrub them properly before putting them inside your juicer.
Soups and Stews
Carrots are a common ingredient in all sorts of healthy and delicious soups and stews. As long as you wash them properly, there’s no need to peel them. This applies to all sorts of different soups, including creamy purée soups and stews where you’re using carrot chunks.
