carrot leaves health benefits

Yes, despite what's used to be known, carrot top is edible. After getting fresh green leafs attached with vegetables is foolishness if you put those in your waste.so here i want you to back to your kitchen waste and get some goodies..

so do not through away your carrot greens as they are very edible. In fact they are loaded with vitamins and minerals. Carrot greens are rich in vitamin K. and vitamin K performes a vital role to bone health which you should get..It’s says that the alkaloids in carrot tops make them slightly dangerous for consumption, but this wont be a big problem for you as alkaloids are a substance found throughout nearly every leafy green vegetable Like kale

Information- Don’t store carrots with their greens still attached. The tops take moisture away from the vegetables. Remove the tops from the vegetables and store them separately.As the tops don’t last very long so plan to eat them in short time.Wrap them with a damp paper towel and store in a plastic storage bag in your fridge. Do not take the main stick,cook the leafs only

There are many ways to have the greens. You could have it with salad or make pesto. Here I am going to put a recipe of carrot top in Indian style which goes nice with rice.........
