If you buy bunched carrots or if you grow your own don't throw out the fresh green leaves. They can be used to make a tasty crunchy topping or for adding to soup or casseroles.

Carrots were on sale in my area for 33 cents a pound. In addition, I grew some carrots in my garden. I have been looking for ways to prepare them. This recipe is different, healthy and delicious. You could easily halve or double it.

I got the Pampered Chef micro cooker pictured in a thrift store. It is terrific for steaming and draining.

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb carrots, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp orange juice

This is one of my kids' favorite potato dishes. I used to make this when they were babies, to get them to eat both potatoes and vegetables at the same time. I still make these because you can spice these up. What a great dish to compliment any roast or meal you are cooking!

This recipe is easy, and with a food processor, it's super fast! Our grandkids love it. Grate carrots and put them in a covered saucepan with a little water and cover tightly.

You could try carrot cake, or cole slaw, carrot juice, glazed carrots, carrot and celery sticks, or add some to a baked chicken or roast.

Peel, and using a food processor, grind down about two cups worth and add to a meatloaf recipe. The veggies will help keep the meatloaf very moist.

I love carrots with Rotel Cheese Dip. Rotel is a brand of tomatoes and green chilies found in a can. You chuck cut a half a block of Velveeta and add the can of Rotel then microwave melt it. Ready for dipping.

A favorite of my granddaughters are deep fried carrots. Slice about 1/2 thick slant cuts, bread in tempura batter and deep fry until breading is golden brown. I also deep fry mushrooms, califlower and thick sliced green tomatoes.

How about in a smoothie? Put a handful of carrots, a banana, and some kind of milk (cow's milk, almond milk, rice milk, etc.) in a blender and puree it. The carrots are pretty sweet, but you could add a little honey or stevia sweeten it up.

Put some in a soup or salad for an excellent addition of flavor and nutrition.

Partially cook the carrots then use them the same way you'd make sweet potato casserole. Cook and puree them and use the puree like you were making a pumpkin pie, use same spice and you'll never know the difference.

Carrot raisin slaw, if you have toddlers around, boil a bag of baby carrots, drain, cool, and keep in fridge, a healthy snack instead of candy, younguns don't chew raw carrots very well.

I love just about any extra fresh veggies dipped in ranch dip as a snack or appetizer. Just get sour cream and a package of Good Seasons dry ranch dip mix. I just put the amount of sour cream I'll need in a small bowl and stir in the seasoning mix to taste. Whatever seasoning you don't use will stay good for a super long time at long as you fold up the top and clip it closed.
