Gone are the days of the carrot being sidelined to a slaw or a quick snack – these days the humble root veg can often be found stealing the show. We’re roasting them, poaching them, and chopping them into modern and fragrant salads – the opportunities are endless and the results, delicious.

Sometimes life is just too short to be scrubbing and chopping carrots. Enter Woolies’ range of prepared carrots, which are ready to eat quicker than it takes to say “What’s up, doc?”. If you want to look all professional, go for the turned chef’s-style carrots. If you’re after the rustic look without the grit, the washed baby carrots are for you (they’re also great for lunchboxes); and if a quick stir-fry is on the cards, you can’t go wrong with the julienne variety.

Woolworths carrots are currently on special – buy two and save R10 on prepared carrots, or buy three and save R10 on Pick & Mix.
