I was lucky enough to be given 2 kg of carrots this week so am wondering if anyone has any scrummy different recipes I can try?

If things are freezable even better so it can be part of my SOL extreme frugal monthLaugh

Not a Main Course, but how about mixing grated carrot and finely chopped spring onion with some cream cheese for a carrot sandwich spread. Seasoning of choice, of course!

Carrot cake (can be frozen, I'm sure)

I also like to make some carrots into julienne strips to go into sweet'n'sour sauce, or stir-fries - and, if they're frozen this way - saves a bit of graft when you're in a hurry.

Grated carrot with salad dressing of your choice?

I'll try that again!

I remember making a carrot and onion marmalade a few years ago. I can't find a recipe anywhere but I think I made an ordinary onion marmalade but with lots of carrot grated into it.

Whenever I get spare carrots, I usually freeze them to use later in soup.

How about spicy carrot fritters? Grated carrots, onion, garlic, chilli or curry powder, thick batter. Mix together and fry.

Thank you all - keep them coming!

There's a Mrs Beeton recipe for carrot marmalade on the bbc site Bobquail but I'm not too sure to be honest.  Like the sound of those fritters though!

Think I'll prep a load and store that way too.  Bust weekend ahead I think!  Laugh

I didn't know about the Mrs Beeton recipe. I've just looked it up (found it here) – it certainly looks interesting. I got my inspiration from a M&S sandwich bought from a motorway service station. It was something like wensleydale with carrot and onion marmalade. When I got home I had a go at making it myself. My version wasn't quite like theirs but I still liked it. Unfortunately I must have neglected to write down the recipe.

I am getting a lift to Dunoon tomorrow to get some shopping in ( I can't get my car out - he's got a 4x4)  I'm going to get carrots and will make spicy carrot fritters. Let you know how I get on Bobquail

You guys - i love onion marmalade so the thought of onion and carrot works for me. Thanks for the BBc link, Bobquail, but do you have anything at all for onion & carrot?

Danast - if you have a moment, do please post your recipe for spicy carrot fritters. I love fritters in general but never had a combo of carrot + spicy. What do they go well with?

Hello Ruth - have you looked at Veronica's 'carrottes forestiere' to try?

Also, leeks and carrots softened in oil or butter, then add a tin of mushroom soup, place in a gratin dish, and put your favourite 'crumble-type' mixture on top, e.g. breadcrumbs, or oaty mix, maybe with cheese mixed in. Even some cooked pasta added to the vegetables beforehand to make a more substantial meal.
