I toss leftover carrots into the freezer. The freeze well. You can defrost and make glazed carrots, add them to soups and stews, flavor stocks, uses them in mire poix.

I chop them up and freeze them, too. Since it's just me here, I freeze them on a cookie sheet first before I put them in a ziplock, so they don't all stick together, and I can grab however much I need.

Grate some up.

Make a dressing w/ oil, honey, something acidic (champagne vinegar!) and S&P.

Top w/ raisins and toasted almonds.

Do you freeze the carrots without blanching them?

Thank you

Munky.
Pink's Carrot and Orange soup (Jane Grigson) - You really do need the little cans of frozen concentrated orange juice you used to be able to buy over here but can't now. I think you can get them in the USA. You can serve this hot or cold but I've only ever served it hot with a swirl of cream
Carrot and coriander soup - some recipes want the leaves and others the seeds (Oops, I mean cilantro)
Ottolenghi's Moroccan grated carrot salad
Carrot puree with dukkah (an Egyptian spice mix)
A simple buttery carrot puree as a side dish with roast meat (Can be frozen)
Roasted glazed carrots
Carrottes Vichy
Carrots in curries either as one of many veg or as one of the principle characters.
Peanut butter and grated carrot sandwiches on Granary or seeded bread (Don't knock it 'til you've tried it.)
Carrot halwa - an Indian dessert

I could think of more

Too many carrots?

This recipe for Carrot Ginger Soup sounds good:

There are also some carrot soups that have a bit of curry flavor to them, if you like it.

carrots, recipe

What Do you Do with Excess Carrots? I was given at least 15 Lbs of fresh carrots yesterday. Just picked. They are huge. It's been a good crop season around here this year. So, what to do with them all? Besides a carrot cake. Have to pass on the cream cheese. No offense I just think it's gross. Thank you Munky. 3 stars 1 reviews
