How to Julienne Carrots with a Peeler

Most often, I julienne carrots in one of two ways: with a julienne peeler or with a knife. If you plan to julienne carrots (or other vegetables – zucchini, cucumber, etc.), often, I highly recommend investing in a peeler. They’re cheap and efficient. Using one, you can julienne a whole bunch of carrots in just minutes! I like this one from OXO. It works perfectly, and it’s just $8.

To julienne carrots with a peeler, place a large carrot, long-side-down, on a flat surface. Hold the carrot by its thick end, and drag the peeler down the carrot, moving from the thick end to the thin one. This motion will produce slender carrot matchsticks. Repeat it until the carrot becomes too thin to julienne. That’s it!

Tip: if your carrots happen to have tops, I recommend leaving them on. They’re handy for anchoring down the carrots as you work.

Otherwise, toss the carrots into soups, stir fries, bowls, and more! Try using them in any of these recipes:

  • Oyster Mushroom Soup – Carrot matchsticks add brilliant color to this savory, brothy soup.
  • Steamed Bao Buns – Tuck in a few carrots for color and crunch!
  • Avocado Toast or Banh Mi Sandwich – Pickled carrot and daikon matchsticks add sweet, tangy flavor to these hearty recipes.
  • Vegetarian Bibimbap – I love their crisp texture in this Korean-inspired rice bowl.
  • Bok Choy Stir Fry, Best Buddha Bowl, or Adzuki Bean Bowl – Replace the carrot ribbons with julienned carrots.
