-Steven M.

Picadilly's Carrot Souffle

"I used to work for Piccadilly. The only change to this recipe is that we used liquid margarine. It does make a difference. Get some squeeze Parkay and use it in place of the softened margarine. It rises higher!”

Simple Honey-Glazed Carrots

"My husband hates cooked carrots. He had seconds. Yum! I used baby carrots and cooked them as directed. I glazed them a little longer to fully caramelize the glaze."

-kathy

Cranberry Maple Carrots

“The aroma when you add the syrup, ginger and rosemary to the hot carrot mixture is simply divine! The glaze is so pretty and shiny immediately after cooking. I had to make this ahead of time to take to a family dinner and therefore I had to reheat it for serving. It still tasted great, but the glaze absorbed some and lost its shine. I recommend serving it immediately after glazing.”

-Donna M.

-Lucky in Bayview

-Lalaloula

"Wonderful and so easy! This came out well. Also because it’s potassium enriched and low in cals.”

-Mini Ravindran

-rlocati1

Carrot & Harissa Puree

"We have made this numerous times and love it. We change the proportions some, like putting way more harissa in than called for, but I bet it would be good as written. And if the carrots are not very sweet, we sometimes add a touch of honey or sugar, not to make it sweet as much as pump up the carrot taste a bit."

-Wu Newt

Carrot Bread

"Very yummy! Tasted like what I have in Starbucks (if not better)!”

-Annacia

Sautéed Cabbage & Carrots

-zenilove

potato carrot kugel
