Both sweet and savory recipes are welcome! Our only requirement is that carrots be a star ingredient, not some mirepoix tagalong.

mirepoix called all upset and it has taken hours to calm it down. No fun wiping those brothy tears. Says it works just as hard as the carrot and can't believe you called it a third wheel.

Hallelujah! Thanks for a low-cal ingredient to work with.

Carrot cake ...... :)
 
hardlikearmour February 26, 2011
True...but it's much easier to make lower cal dishes when your subject is carrot, rather than pudding or fondue!

Oh lordy. Still recovering from pudding coma, but I'll see what I can rustle up.
 
hardlikearmour February 25, 2011
just don't make any carrot pudding, and you'll be okay!
 
Sagegreen February 25, 2011
Carrot pudding; carrot ice cream....at least there are many savory directions, too. Thank goodness.

Aw, man. I was totally thinking about a carrot pudding...

I WANT MY HOSSENFEFFER! (if I didn't know better I'd swear this was carrots)
 
mrslarkin February 25, 2011
Are you looking for savory only, or sweet recipes too?
 
thirschfeld February 25, 2011
if you are even thinking carrot cake I want the recipe posted regardless of the answer to the above question and thank you very much.
