Raw Carrot Cake Bliss Balls

This recipe is one that should be labelled guilt free cake really.  Take the best of a healthy sounding cake and turn it into a raw, vegan option and you’d be forgiven for thinking it may be less than fabulous.  Never fear though, with my inspiration a recipe from Bianca at Wholefood Simply, we can’t…

Spiced Carrot Fritters

Zucchini fritters are a favorite in our house as you’ve no doubt noticed on the blog from the number of posts.   With an over abundance of carrots in the fridge I thought it might be time to experiment a little and get to play with the new mandolin that I picked up at Daiso for…

Pickled Carrots with Schezuan Peppercorns

My meals of late have been rather boring and simple.  We’re eating the same old stuff due to necessity and a lack of time and inspiration.  Our chief cause is one very handsome little boy that is now over 4 months old and dominating our home with his presence.  He’s a very good excuse for…

Ginger Carrot Soup with a Touch of Orange

There’s been a lot happening behind the scenes of Sharing The Food We Love and much of it is unrelated to food hence the level of radio silence that has been going on. I’ve been very hesitant to blog about the biggest news that is happening with us for fear of turning into another blog…

Chilled Carrot and Hazelnut soup

When I started making the Pea and Mint soup earlier this week I got into the chilled soup groove and decided to give this recipe a go too.  I didn’t find this recipe to be as successful in its execution or flavour balance, although I would definitely use it as a base inspiration for making…

Carrot and Blue Cheese Soup

Soup has been the dish du jour for me lately with the frosty days of winter upon us. To be honest though, I really shouldn’t complain about the weather living in Queensland.  Whilst my southern friends and family are shivering through this season, we are still being treated to sunny days of 20+C, although the…

Carrot and Cornmeal Soda Bread

When Lady Red Specs posted this recipe on her blog Please Pass The Recipe a few days ago I was instantly excited to try the recipe.  I’ve been seeking something new and different for breakfast and this seemed to fit the bill where muesli, plain old toast and smoothies were losing their appeal.    I loved…

Roasted Carrot, Lemon and Harissa Dip

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a dip recipe with you all and to be honest, it has been a while since I’ve made some to share in our house as well.  We have the fall back guacamole but even that has been rare with avocados being pretty expensive.  I’m not quite sure what…

Honey Roasted Baby Carrots

I love to cook for other people.  It’s one of the greatest motivators for me to get into the kitchen.  Seeing people’s faces with delight and pleasure when they are smelling and eating the food that I’ve created gives me a great sense of satisfaction and pride of a job well done.  And I think…

Fennel and Orange Chicken Skewers with Carrot Salad

Another yum moment from this cook book.   I loved the look of it when I started on this project, but as I move through the recipes that appeal to me I am learning some new flavour combinations and having my memory refreshed of others.  I love fresh fennel with orange, so combining the seeds with…

BBQ Salad Series: Coleslaw

I love Asian style coleslaws with a passion, and could live on them all summer.  This time around though I thought I’d hark back to an earlier time in my memory when this was the salad de jour at BBQ’s when I was a child.  As I got older and worked in my Mum’s catering…

BBQ Salad Series:Moroccan Carrot Salad

Carrot is a great base for salads.  It’s substantial, sweet and crunchy all at the same time.  Add a few interesting ingredients and you have a fabulous way to turn the humble carrot into something a little exotic for your meal table without it taking hours to create.   This salad is actually one that  I…
