10 Ways to Cook With Carrots

It’s time for a recipe round-up again! Today, we’re going cook with carrots. They’re a versatile veggie with lots of uses, whether cooked or raw.  Here’s 10 recipes using them for you to try!

1. Carrot and Coriander Soup

This soup is full of flavour – the carrot and coriander are both pretty strong, and you can definitely sweeten it up with a bit of maple syrup if you want some extra punch. We served it up with a dollop of creme fraiche and a few rocket leaves on top for a little zing. 

2. Honey roasted sesame seed carrots

These honey roasted sesame carrots are a standard Sunday favourite of ours, so they were a perfect and simple choice for the first recipe!

3. Festive Carrot Soup

There’s really nothing sophisticated at all to this recipe, and you can chop and change it as much as you like.

4. Carrot & Hazelnut Loaf

We’re all about Sunday lunch at the moment. There’s just something so satisfying about fresh, crunchy vegetables doused in gravy, and combined with fluffy Yorkshire puddings. Then there’s the main event, the piece de resistance – in this case, a delicious carrot and hazelnut loaf.

5. Bread bowls

Carrot soup of any kind can be livened up by being served in a bread bowl! You can also get inventive and use your carrots to dip into the soup.

6. Hello Fresh Sweet Potato and Carrot Curry

This is a good example of a recipe I would never have tried normally – I hate green beans, carrot always seems a bit boring, and I’ve certainly never heard of a curry that combines the two of them. We gave it a try though – as always!

7. Carrot sticks for dipping

A mushroom pie forms the base for this carrot recipe. The filling was topped off with celeriac, potato, carrot, and swede in a mash topping. No pastry was involved – this was our healthiest Christmas dinner ever!

9. Classic sliced carrots

There’s nothing more classic than carrot coins with Sunday lunch. For this Christmas meal, hiding under the mash were carrots and a vegetarian sausage.
