How to Julienne
To julienne a carrot start with a clean, peeled carrot (I’m saying carrot but you can julienne all sorts of fruits and vegetables) a sharp knife, and a cutting board.
If you are using a carrot or any thing that could roll cut a slice off one side so you have a nice even surface to work with – it’s important to do this step and create a flat side because a rolling carrot could lead to an injury.
If you’re using a long vegetable like a carrot cut it in half or in thirds so you have a manageable area to work with.
Cut into long slices.
Stack some of the slices and cut again to create long thin strips.
Voila – you’ve just julienned a carrot!
