    Looking for recipes for carrots

    Our son has a good harvest of carrots and would like some ideas of what to make with them. I'm sure they'd be good roasted and in soups and salads, of course. Anything else you can think of?

    I like to make marinated carrots on holidays because they are served cold and can be made a day ahead. Do you have that recipe? I also leave the oil out of the recipe, which makes it lower calories, and it tastes the same anyway.

    Carrot Souffle! very good. here is a link to the Picadilly Cafeteria recipe.... a google search for carrot souffle recipe will yield a lot of choices. I make it in a blender much quicker. Just add everything and turn it on.

    Thank you for your tips and recipes, will send them on to him. No, JustAbitCrazy, I do not have that recipe for marinated carrots, only for mushrooms (in Italian dressing). Would appreciate having it even for myself.

    One of my son's favourite recipes- carrot salad. I grate the carrots on the inch long ovals on my grater usually 6-8 carrots and then add Miracle Whip until the shreds are covered and refrigerate bowl until serving. Yummy!

    I just made your recipe using 1 pound of carrots that made 2.5+ cups, also used 1/2 teaspoon of Truvia then the remaining items.
    They are so very good and it is just me in the household, had to put them away before eating all of them. They are not real sweet and do not really taste like a cooked carrot, a good thing. Will be making them again for sure, thank you for your recipe.

    Any hints on how to deal with them and take to a church potluck dinner. Putting them in a small crock pot to stay hot might over cook them, unless I can do them on site before the meal, in the crock pot.

    I love them cooked al dente, drained and stir in a little honey to glaze them.
    I just want to spend the rest of my life laughing.

    My sister-in-law used to put them in a microwave and put a little brown sugar on them. That is all I know. I loved them. I'm sure a little butter and covered.

    Fresh Dilled Carrots

    1 package raw Carrots (chopped into bite sized pieces and steamed

    ½ package of fresh Dill (washed and chopped very fine, including the stems

    Mix the carrots with some Butter and fresh dill. If you wish, you can premake and then heat up later in the microwave.

    JENNR8R, your version sounds like a nice change and would be pretty with the green dill and carrots.
    Do you think dill weed would work as fresh is not available now and how about a little dill pickle juice to bring out the dill flavor.

    Here you go, Needles, it's easy:

    Marinated Carrots

    2 lbs. carrots
    1 can tomato soup
    1/2 c. oil (optional)
    3/4 c. vinegar
    3/4 c. sugar
    pepper to taste
    1 onion, sliced thin
    1 green pepper, diced
    optional: some small steamed cauliflower florets

    Steam the carrots whole until they are just tender all the way through, not mushy. After they cool a bit, slice them down into "coins' which are about a half inch thick. (You want to be able to stir them later without them breaking.) Mix the tomato soup, oil, vinegar, sugar and pepper in a large bowl, stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the carrots, diced green peppers, onion and cauliflower, mix gently to moisten everything. Refrigerate and mix occasionally so the vegetables at the top get rotated down into the marinade. Serve cold. My recipe says it keeps in the refrigerator for 2 weeks! Ours never lasts that long, lol.

    I make my carrot cake in the blender. No need to grate them.
    I put all the dry ingredients into a large bowl.
    Put eggs, vanilla and milk into the blender.
    Cut carrots into chunks. I use about 4 cups of chunks.
    Heat carrots in the microwave until they are quite warm. 2 or 3 minutes.
    Add half of carrots to blender pitcher and blend. Add more carrots and blend.
    Add butter and coconut oil and blend. If pitcher gets too full, pour about half into the dry ingredients.
    All all the rest of the carrots and blend. Add all to dry ingredients. Spread into pan and bake.

    I've never tried it with dried dill weed. I think there would be something lost in the translation.
    I can get fresh dill in the grocery stores year 'round here.

    Allrecipes.com has a "Chef John recipe for bourbon-glazed carrots. My nephew made them yesterday, and they were wonderful.

    Unique, delicious and fun to make. I swear, I could serve this to guests and they would not even know it wasn't salmon.
