Carrot Serving Ideas
Cooked carrots make an excellent vegetable side dish, and they are often served with cream sauce, glazed, or dressed with a little brown sugar and butter.
Carrot tops are rich in minerals, and can be chopped and added to soups, salads and sauces.
Try making oven roasted parsnips and carrots for a tasty side dish or a snack! Dip in some garlic sriracha mayo as a delicious after school or after work snack that’s tasty and good for you. Vitamin A, fibre, vitamin C…what’s not to love?
Serve a sweet side dish like these roasted carrots with clover honey with a holiday meal for an extra special take on an otherwise classic dinner dish.
Carrots add colour, parnsips bring sweetness, apples provide crunch, and walnuts inject protein and meaty flavour in this simple fall-inspired salad. Feel free to switch up the carrots and add purple carrots for even more interesting colour!
