4 Unconventional Ways to Enjoy Carrots

Carrots may be one of the most familiar sources for vitamin A and many other antioxidants, but limiting them to a steamed side or shredded topping on your salad can get boring. Here are four healthy, flavorful, and unconventional ways to enjoy the root vegetable at any meal.

Pink Lady Carrot Juice


Adding carrots to smoothies or a cold-pressed juice is a simple way to add nutrients as well as impart sweetness, but for something with a little more pizzazz (and a lot more immune-boosting nutrients), try blending carrots with other roots like beets and sweet potato.

Spiced Carrot Soup

Carrot soup is a comforting staple and works well with warming spices like cumin and cloves, which help elevate POPSUGAR Food's recipe for Middle Eastern spiced carrot soup to healthy dinner-party status.
