Turning beets and carrots into matchsticks?

BeckyAndTheBeanstock | May 24, 2010 08:30 AM

I've been doing it by hand, chopping all my veggies into the dainty, not-so-hard-on-the-jaw pieces and there has got to be a better way. Does anyone know the secret? I've tried using food processor attachments to get the small, tender pieces but they tend to make a mess, forming long strips or alternately, forming mush. How do you get your beets, carrots, celery root, kohlrabi, etc into pretty little matchstick pieces? Is there some piece -- or brand -- of equipment that I don't have that I should?
