Ultra Moist Carrot Cake
I have to be honest — when Marjan first gave me this recipe for her famous carrot cake (which I hadn't tried to that day), I was a bit skeptical. Skeptical because of the word "pineapple" in the list of ingredients. Don't get me wrong, I like pineapples, but in my carrot cake? No way! I want my carrot cake to taste nothing like pineapples, but all walnuts and carrots. But hey, what is a true foodie if you don't give everything a try. So I did! And rest assured, this carrot cake is simply the best I've ever had. Not the slightest hint of pineapple flavor, but full of extra moisture that carrots alone would never manage to yield. After having my first bite of this incredible carrot cake, I threw out all my other carrot cake recipes (and I had a few, as "Rüeblitorte" also is a Swiss specialty). I just couldn't get myself to eating any other kind of carrot cake again. See all cake recipes.

Lazy Roast Carrot Soup
What I also like about this soup is that it is relatively free form and foolproof. No real heavy measuring, no watching of a pan or pot, cutting into beans, spending hours nearby, and yet, certainly more sophisticated than puréeing stovetop cooked carrots. It is a quiet roast of a big chopped carrot in the oven, then a quick hot bath with some broth and sautéed onion, garlic, and a nice pinch of spices punches flavor into the soup an it is finished with a squeeze of lemon and whizzed to smooth.For more great recipes like this one, visit Salvegging.

Types of Carrots
Some may caution against making your own carrots at home due to issues with nitrates. However, the solution to avoiding any contamination is to avoid using the steaming liquid when pureeing carrots.

I have loved this dressing ever since I was a kid. Carrot-Ginger Dressing, which almost always accompanies a green salad in Japanese restaurants, has a sweet and tangy flavor combination that everyone seems to love. But it was only recently that I learned the two secrets to this dressing. One: You have to cook the carrots ever so slightly to soften them and bring out their sweetness. Two: The secret ingredient that makes the dressing “pop” is neither carrot nor ginger. It’s shallot.
