Carrots are a root vegetable and can be found in colorful varieties of yellow, white, orange, red and purple. Regardless of color, they are interchangeable and can serve as a snack on-on-the-go, shredded into a chicken burger, cooked and added to chicken soup, roasted as a side dish or even blended into a smoothie.
