Carrots should be eaten both raw & cooked.

Cooking carrots is simple, just wash, peel & cut into any shape before boiling, steaming, roasting, pureeing or even frying with a little honey
For boiling carrots, it is best to boil them for 12-15 minutes. 
6 - 8 minutes to steam carrots that are sliced 1/2cm thick.
Carrots cooked whole, then cut up, are noticeably sweeter than if they are cut up first
Whilst some nutrients may be lost in the cooking process, others are made more bioavailable.
Carrots are full of sulfur & glutathione which helps in the detoxification process, especially when eaten raw.
Buy carrots without the greenery still on them, otherwise those pretty leafy tops will act like nutrient vampires sucking out the vitamins & moisture before you can eat the carrots.
Carrots pair well with mild or strong flavours... use spices like; cinnamon, cumin, coriander, ginger, nutmeg & paprika, along with herbs: dill, fennel, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme, basil & garlic
