10 New Ways to Eat CarrotsCarrot sticks and hummus are my go-to snack when I need a quick, healthy pick-me-up. When time is on my side, though, carrots have so much more to offer than simply snacking. Roasting brings out their natural sweetness, making them a tasty, easy side dish. There’s the ever-popular carrot-ginger soup pairing, which Food Network Kitchens has turned into an energy-boosting breakfast smoothie. Speaking of soup, I found a couple of new, inspiring ones too. Here’s a peek at some of the more-versatile recipes that elevate the humble carrot to superstar status in the kitchen.

1. Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Carrots

2. Carrot “Fettuccine” with Lemon Thyme-Butter Sauce

3. Carrot-Ginger Smoothie

4. Brown-Sugared Carrots

5. Roasted Carrot and Basil Soup

6. Pickled Jalapenos and Carrots

7. Orange-Scented Carrot Soup

8. Carrot Celery Root Puree

9. Moroccan Carrot Salad with Parsley and Roasted Lemon
