Carrots are inexpensive and the kind of vegetable that you always have in your fridge. So often left languishing in the crisper (or is that just me?) here are 5 delicious recipes featuring the humble carrot. There is a wonderful spiral tart, a roasted carrot salad, a divine carrot yogurt dip, a healthy carrot soup to an amazing carrot and orange marmalade!

1 - Carrot Salad
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 readers
Have Dutch carrots? Will make this delightful carrot salad with roasted Dutch carrots, farro, almonds and yogurt. It is a great lunch on its own or a fabulous side dish to meat too!
2 - Carrot Yogurt Dip
This is a recipe for Turkish carrot dip or yoğurtlu havuç with caraway and yogurt. If you love tzatziki then I think you'll adore this dip. Carrots are sautéed until sweet and then mixed with yogurt, spices and garlic!
3 - Carrot Orange Marmalade
Summer isn't the only season for preserving. Winter has citrus available so give this carrot and orange marmalade a try! This is a truly delicious conserve mostly made up of carrot with some orange, ginger and cardamom. Promise me you'll try this!
4 - Carrot and Cumin Detox Soup
This one is a blast from the past but it really makes the most of the natural sweetness of carrots and makes them into a delicious, creamy soup that is flavoured with cumin and ginger!
5 - Spiral Vegetable Tart
This vegetable tart uses carrots, zucchini and eggplant and presents them in a gorgeous way. But there's no sacrificing flavour for looks here! There's a base of pesto and cheese underneath all of that vegetable goodness.
So tell me Dear Reader, what is your favourite way to cook or eat carrots?
