Power up your lunch with the on-trend appeal of a healthy salad bowl loaded with nutritious veggies and plant-based protein. Our composed power bowl includes protein-rich quinoa, fresh salad greens, marinated chick peas, avocado, crisp spring veggies and hummus dip finished with a drizzle of olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon. We sprinkled roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and blueberries over our salad for extra flavor and nutrition.
The leafy green tops of carrots are nothing to be afraid of, they are earthy in flavor and taste surprisingly similar to carrots! We blended our leafy tops with garlic, Parmesan, toasted almonds, honey and red wine vinegar for this delicate carrot top pesto.
This recipe could serve 4 as a main vegetarian dish, or 8 as a side dish paired with grilled shrimp, chicken or fish.
Roasting brings out the natural sweetness of fresh carrots and beets in this delicious vegetable salad. A simple lemon vinaigrette dressing balances the rich sweet caramelized flavor with the perfect tangy flavor note. Serve salad at room temperature or chilled topped with fresh crumbled feta cheese.
Oven-Roasted Carrot Fries with Sriracha Ranch Dip are a great way to celebrate Spring. You can switch out standard French fries with these golden crispy oven-roasted shoestring carrot fries, partnered with a bold spicy sriracha ranch dip made with yogurt ranch dressing and a squeeze of intense sriracha! We included a variety of root vegetables to our recipe for added color and flavor. Or go with tri-color heirloom carrots for a colorful burst of crispy roasted carrot flavor.
Rustic Carrot Pie is an unexpected dessert--but we figured, if you can have carrot cake, why not carrot pie? Our Food Channel chefs whipped this up, doused it with maple syrup, and left us asking for more. Try it for Easter or anytime you want to showcase the hottest trend in vegetables: carrots!
