It’s Monday again, and we’re starting our week with a collection of yummy carrot-inspired recipes. These crunchy versatile root vegetables are in season pretty much all year round in the UK except March, April and May.

Immediately forget any bad memories you may have of boring carrot sticks in a lonely lunch box…because carrots can taste incredible if prepared the right way in the right recipes. You can make cakes, grate them into salads, roast them with honey, juice them, stir fry them, curry them, you name it.

incredibly good for your vision and immune system,  carrots are chock-full of beta-carotenes, vitamin A, minerals and anti-oxidants. Basically they’re extremely good for you, so eat your veg like your mama told you.

Here is a list of the internet’s best carrot-creations:
