Carrot Cake Pancakes
This pancake recipe is delicious and I’m not just saying that!
It’s easy and only uses a handful of ingredients. Top with the sweet coconut whipped cream and my goodness me!
Roasted Carrot White Bean Spread
I love hummus although despite its different varieties, sometimes I need a complete change.
As the title suggests, the base of this spread is white beans, so you’re guaranteed this is packed with protein.
Add your carrots along with all the other flavors and you have a serious contender for hummus. Delicious!
Roasted Rainbow Carrots with Maple and Dill
I think I recently read that the original carrots were not orange, but purple on the outside and orange on the inside.
With starting to see different variations of carrot, just be aware that some of them are actually the original type!
This recipe is super easy and if you don’t count the salt or carrots, you’re looking at just three ingredients! Bake and eat!

Red Panda Carrot Soup
I’m not really into soups so to get one appearing in a roundup means it has to be really good!
What I love about this dish is the simplicity of ingredients.

Carrot and Avocado Gazpacho
If you’ve never heard of gazpacho, it’s simply a raw and cold soup.
Don’t let that put you off because we are talking super healthy, and that’s an understatement!
This recipe does require the carrots to be juiced so if you don’t have a juicer, you could blend? Let us know what you come up with.

I don’t think I’ve ever heard of carrot bread before, not sure. I have now and I’m sure glad we found this recipe!
