Next time you're at the grocery store, buy that big bag of carrots. I am always surprised by how cheap a bag is — it will barely set you back a few dollars — and that's still the case even if you're buying organic! So, naturally, we consider carrots to be a good grocery investment all around. In fact, there aren't many other vegetables that can be equally tasty roasted alongside a whole chicken as they can be baked into a cake that's piled with cream cheese frosting.

You'll have no trouble cooking your way through the bag (and getting a serious dose of vitamin A) — especially if you lean on these 20 recipes for inspiration.

Sides, Salads, and Starters

Carrots make for a colorful side dish or unique appetizer, whether roasted, glazed, shredded for a crunchy salad, or blended into a creamy dip. If you bought that bag of rainbow carrots, you can have even more fun with how the final dish looks.

Mains for Lunch & Dinner

Carrots become part of the main attraction when they're tossed with pasta or tucked alongside a roast.

Sweet Breakfast & Dessert Treats

Carrot cake is classic, sure, but carrots can dabble in other sweets too, like muffins and even cookies!
