Quick and Easy Carrot Recipes

July 6, 2011

We have little baby carrots in the garden! They are no more than a nibble, but to the 4 year old who planted the seeds, these carrots are nothing short of magical. 

I love raw carrots. Cooked carrots - notsomuch. They are ok in things, but my inner child  just can't get past the mushy texture. How do I get around this? I just don't serve carrots plain as a side dish. There are so many ways to use them, it's never a problem. Here are a few favorites: 

Carrot Marmalade
I love marmalades. They are great on English muffins of course, but make wonderful glazes for meats. Enjoy!

Carrot Cake
Why do we have to make carrot cake so healthy all the time? I just love this with cream cheese frosting. 

Tangy Carrot and Pepper Soup
Finally, a fun carrot soup with a kick. Love this!
