6 Scrumptious Carrot Recipes

Our Easy Carrot Grain Loaf is a hearty, scrumptious and versatile dish. You can even use leftover grain from the night before to make it or add your own variation of tasty veggies!

Easy Carrot Grain Loaf
yields 1 loaf

  • 2 cups brown rice (uncooked)
  • 1 cup grain of choice (uncooked)
  • 2 cups carrots, grated
  • 1/2 lb. (1 cup) organic tofu, rinsed & drained
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1–2 tsp. each:  garlic & onion powder
  • 1 large onion, diced, sautéed
  • 3 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup tamari or substitute
  • 1/2 cup tahini dressing*
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2–3 tbsp. mustard (optional)

1. Cook grains and set aside to cool (you can make the grain, let it cool and refrigerate it overnight as well.)
2. In a food processor, using the “S” shaped blade, blend all ingredients except grains, carrots and onions until smooth. In a large bowl, mix this into the grains and carrots.
3. Place into an oiled casserole and bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until golden-brown.

Variation: Instead of putting this dish into an oiled casserole dish, form the mixture into small patties and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, making your own veggie/grain burgers.

*Tahini Dressing
yields 1 1/2 cups

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 3 tsp. tamari or substitute
  • spices or herbs of choice (optional)

In a blender, blend all ingredients. (Use 1/4 cup more water for a thinner dressing to pour on salad.) Keeps for up to two days in the refrigerator.

Variation ~ 1 tsp. curry powder may be added for a delicious curry-tahini dressing.

I was hoping to see something with a carrot/potato combination. Maybe with some cheese.

Thanks for this awareness campaign. It's good to know that alternatives are becoming more available…

Thank you for sharing this good advice. *_*

As much as eggs cost these days, esp if you get eggs from free range chickens, it would not make eco…

Thank you Wesley S...I was just about to point out the "negative calorie" myth.
