Sheshebop has picked CARROTS for our next Cookalong focus ingredient.

Before you groan.... think about the wide variety of things made from carrots. There's many desserts, breads, salads and main dishes in addition to carrots cooked as a vegetable.

So let's get creative!

Our virtual dinner will be Sat Feb 28.

For those that may have missed the first Cookalong..... the idea here is to post hints, recipes and discuss the focus ingredient over the next two weeks. Recipes can use any form of the ingredient. Please mention the recipe source and whether it is one that you have already made (T+T) or one that you might be trying for the first time.

I'm going to make an attempt to link all the cookalongs together.

I don't have a recipe for it, but I do like ginger carrot soup. I have two carrots in the fridge that I bought for making soup stock, but I have to buy a chicken first. I have never made ginger carrot soup, and so if someone can suggest a good recipe, I could possibly try that.

Here's a partial recipe I ran across while cleaning my desk today. It is for Vietnamese dipping sauce, but it has no quantities! I simply make it to taste.

Ingredients:

fish sauce lime juice fresh minced Serrano chili julienned carrot sugar cilantro

Carrot is not a main ingredient, but it's definitely in there. I sometimes add grated carrot to egg rolls or summer rolls, although I haven't made those recently. I think I'm in the mood for some of those now, however.

I use no more than half a carrot when I make chicken stock, or else it tastes too sweet for me. Except for the ginger soup, I can only take carrots in tiny doses - but I love ginger, and so that makes it all better.

I just remembered that the first cookalong was Ginger, and so I went to that thread (which I had not read up to this point), and found Lindac's ginger carrot soup recipe. I guess I'm a bit behind here.
