Rainbow Carrot Ribbon Salad (pictured) (Proud Italian Cook)
Rainbow carrots are not only more colorful; they also offer a wider range of health benefits. According to the USDA, red carrots are made up of lycopene, which guards against heart disease and cancer.

BBQ Roast Chicken with Carrot Puree (Cooking Melangery)
This is the perfect seasonal main to celebrate the last days of summer (shhhh). To enhance the flavor, pair the puree with some herb butter.

Cooking with Love Recipe: Spicy Carrot-Ginger Soup (Cooking with Love)
This is the kind of meal that’s even better the next day, and is perfect for a quick midday bite. To give it a zesty kick, add two teaspoons of fresh lime juice.

Looking for a restaurant-quality meal without the bill? The flavorful burst of ginger and carrots here will make this a meal to remember.

Vegan Creamy Roasted Carrot Coconut Shakes (Fresh Family Cooking)
You won’t be tempted by the vending machine for your mid-afternoon snack ever again. To enjoy the perfect creamy blend, don’t forget to mix in some coconut and almond milk.

Carrot Cake with Orange Maple Cashew Cream Frosting (Edible Perspective)
Just because food is gluten-free and dairy-free doesn’t mean that it also has to taste gluten-free and dairy-free (dry almond flour crumbs, away with you!). If the maple syrup-flavored frosting is not to your tasting, you can substitute it with honey or agave nectar.
