Carrot Recipes

We have great carrots from Gemini Farms this season at the CSA.  They are big and flavorful.  Great for roasting, cooking into a soup or eating raw with a little peanut butter.  Carrots are one of the things that I tend to overlook for recipes because most people are familiar with the vegetable.  I looked in my fridge last weekend and realized that they are piling up.  Time to focus on eating more of the healthy carrots!

Easy Roasted Carrots

Last night I peeled and cut three carrots into matchsticks.  I drizzled olive oil, salt, pepper and Herbs de Provence over them.  This spice mix always makes me think of roasted carrots and it includes basil, rosemary, thyme and about 4 other herbs.  It is a nice delicate mix to smell while they are roasting.  You can make it yourself or buy it at most stores.  Roast at 425 degrees for 20-30 minutes.  I ate them as a finger food, like french fries, with my potato & celery soup and half a grilled Mesa Top Farm mozzarella sandwich.

Need more complex carrot recipes to get you in the cooking mood?  Here are two that are interesting.

Enjoy!
