How to Cut Veggies Into Matchsticks (or Julienne)
I did this with carrots but you can really use this technique on pretty much any veggie you would want to cut into a matchstick. 

 

Cut the carrot in half.
Cut the outer sides to make a square shape.  This will make it easier to cut and it won’t roll around.
Cut thin strips lengthwise like so and lay them next to each other.  You can also stack them but I find they move around a bit too much.
Cut the matchsticks from the strips you just laid out.
