One of my favorite carrot recipes is steamed carrots with dill weed and butter. Simple but oh so tasty if you like dill.

This recipe uses 2 cups of carrots

My family really likes this loaf:

Carrot & Cashew Nut Roast
  • 1 -- Medium onion, chopped
  • 1-2 -- Cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) -- Olive oil or sunflower oil
  • 2 cups (500 mL) -- Carrots, cooked and mashed
  • 2 cups (500 mL) -- Cashew nuts, ground
  • 1 cup (250 mL) -- Whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) -- Light tahini (sesame paste)
  • 1 tsp (7 mL) -- Caraway seeds
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) -- Yeast extract
  • -- Lemon, squeezed
  • 1/3 cup (85 mL) -- Stock from carrots or water
  • To taste... -- Salt and fresh pepper
Fry the onion and garlic in the oil until soft. Mix together will all the other ingredients and place the mixture in a greased loaf pan. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for one hour. Remove the foil and bake for a further 10 minutes. Leave to stand in the baking pan for at least 10 minutes before turning out.

I put carrots in everything I can. I even like a few chopped carrots in my spaghetti sauce...a little grated carrot in my potato soup...sliced into soups, stews, bean dishes, and casseroles, cooked with any roasted meat, raw with dips, grated into salads, you name it.
You can also mix them (or not) with vegetables of your choice, and braise in a good chicken broth with a bit of garlic and a pat or two of butter (opt). Season to suit your taste. Salt & pepper does it for me.
My mom used to make a Jello salad with grated carrots, crushed pineapple, and orange jello, using the juice form the pineapple as part of the cold liquid called for. I loved that stuff.
I don't have a recipe for it, nor have I ever tasted it, but there is a carrot/raisin salad out there.

This is a recipe from Delia Smith, it is incredibly easy to make and tastes really fresh and light. Great served cold/cool on a hot summers day.

Belarussian Carrot Salad
------------------------
450g carrots, peeled and grated
2 tsp coriander seeds, roasted and crushed lightly
2 tbsp neutral oil
1 small onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
cayenne pepper

Marinade:
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tsp salt

Place carrot in a bowl, pour over the marinade and mix so everything is well coated. Cover, set aside for at least 3 hours, or preferably, overnight. If the carrots are very fresh, they develop too much juice, which should be poured away.
Heat the oil a in a frying pan. Add the onion and fry until golden. Allow to cool a little, then drain the oil through a sieve on to the carrots and discard the onion. Now add the coriander seeds to the carrots, along with the garlic and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Give a good stir before serving.
Covered, this salad will keep for a couple of days in the fridge.

Serves 4-6 as a side dish.
