1. Carrot Souffle

To start you off on a sweet note is this heavenly carrot souffle. It’s fluffy, light, creamy, and brimming with carrots. 

The way you make it is more akin to a casserole. So no need to have expert culinary skills.

That also means you can serve it as a side or save it for dessert. 

If you go with the latter, add a sweet topping of mini marshmallows for a jolly twist.

3. Paula Deen Carrot Cake

Carrot cake is an Easter classic and nobody does it quite like Paula Deen!

The moist cake and cream cheese frosting are everything carrot cake should be.

And this copycat recipe will show you just how to do it.

If you don’t have a ton of time, prepare the batter the night before and bake it come Easter morning. 

4. Candied Carrots

Add a festive touch to your desserts, salads, and sides with candied carrots. 

These are a super fun topping that gives your dishes a sweet bite. 

You simmer carrot strips in a sugar water bath, transfer them to the oven, and then give them a ribbon curl shape. 

Don’t forget to sprinkle them with sugar for that yummy candied crunch.

5. Carrot Cake Cookies with Pineapple Frosting 

Brighten up the holiday with a platter of carrot cake cookies. 

They’re a sweet surprise for both kids and adults alike. 

You take a box of carrot cake mix and sweeten it with applesauce, add freshly grated carrots, and plop them in the oven.

Once they’re cool, slather on the pineapple cream cheese frosting with chopped pecans.

6. Honey Brown Sugar Roasted Carrots

Dress up your carrots for the holiday with the sweet kiss of honey and brown sugar

It’s a super easy side to add to your feast. And, it’s budget-friendly too. 

All you need is a handful of pantry staples and a couple of pounds of carrots. 

7. Carrot Cake Cupcakes

These cupcakes are cute as a bunny! 

They taste like classic carrot cake and come in a fun personal size. 

When making them, shred your carrots super fine to get the perfect amount of carrots and texture in each bite.

The warming spices, tender cake, and cream cheese frosting will put a smile on every holiday goer’s face.

8. Easy Carrot Cake Cheesecake

Can’t decide between carrot cake or cheesecake? Have them both!

These squares have the tender cake you crave with the cheesecake topping you desire. 

You make it all from scratch, which can sound intimidating to some.

But don’t worry, it’s a super easy recipe to follow.

9. Cream Cheese Carrot Cake Trifle

This trifle is an Easter masterpiece! 

Commemorate the holiday with an extra special treat and go all out with this impressive dessert. 

This seven-ingredient trifle looks gorgeous on display and it’s foolproof. 

The credit goes to none other than Betty Crocker herself. 

You take her boxed carrot cake mix, frozen whipped topping, cream cheese, and nuts, and layer it in a large trifle glass.

10. Creamy Roasted Carrot Soup

Lunch, dinner, or first course, creamy carrot soup is a holiday must. 

The depth of the roasted carrots and the thick luscious texture is a marvel considering there isn’t an ounce of cream.

It’s vegetarian-friendly and can be vegan-friendly too if you swap out the butter for a non-dairy substitute. 

11. Tahini Dill Carrot Noodles

Tahini is a condiment that’s often overlooked in the kitchen.

Yet, when you know how to use it right, you can make all sorts of wonderful things.

Like these carrot noodles for example. They add a creamy nuttiness that makes a jumble of peeled carrots taste remarkable. 

Brighten it up with a squeeze of lemon, a pinch of dill, and a dash of garlic powder. It’s an easy Easter side that requires zero cooking. 

12. Vegan and Gluten-free Carrot Gnocchi 

Tender gnocchi is a gift from the heavens. So what could be more fitting for Easter than a joyous carrot version?!

These pillowy plumps trade in potatoes for carrots to make them festive and healthy.

Not only are they gluten-free, but they’re vegan, too.

Top them with vegan pesto or an herb-infused sauce.

This dish is fresh, wholesome, and tastes like new beginnings with a holiday spin.

13. Carrot Ginger Soup

Capture the essence of Easter with this carrot ginger soup. 

It’s cozy and modest with just an extra touch of class. 

Fresh ginger and apple cider vinegar enhance the flavors of the roasted carrots to make them pop. 

Plus, it’s vegan and gluten-free, so more guests can enjoy it.

14. Honey Glazed Carrots

These sweet nibbles will be a fabulous addition to your holiday spread. 

Sweet and savory, they go with a wide range of dishes and main proteins.

Ham, chicken, lamb, and white fish to give you an idea. 

The process is smooth and painless. The same goes for the ingredients, too.

15. Pecan Pie Glazed Carrots

Easter wouldn’t be complete without a special carrot side. 

And these pecan pie glazed carrots are an explosion of flavors and textures!

They’re sweet, crunchy, tender, nutty, and a smidge fancy.

They take the essence of pecan pie and pack it into a wholesome carrot side dish.

And it doesn’t take long at all. Just 15 minutes. 

16. Cracker Barrel Baby Carrots

Perhaps it’s the kid in me, but there’s something about Cracker Barrel’s baby carrots that’s rather tempting. 

The sugary buttery glaze and tender carrots melt in your mouth. They’re so good!

What’s even better is you only need four ingredients to grace the table with this holiday dish.

17. Carrot Pie

Pie is the ideal dessert for any holiday. And this one has Easter written all over it.

The warming spices, hint of vanilla, and maple syrup take the carrot filling from good to extravagant. 

I know it sounds basic, but it’s far tastier than you can imagine.

18. Garlic Herb Carrots

Looking to cut down on sugar? Season your carrots with garlic and herbs. 

It’s fresher and more savory than adding a sugary glaze.

The recipe has just the right amount of elegance to make it great for the holidays.

You can also adjust the herb combination to your liking.

19. Moroccan Chickpea Carrot Salad

Liven up your Easter spread with this Moroccan-inspired salad. 

It’s a vibrant blend of raw carrots, crisp cucumbers, sweet dates, and fresh feta tossed with arugula.

For plant-based protein, add chickpeas and quinoa. 

Pair it with a zippy dressing to keep the mood light and sprightly.

20. Super Moist Carrot Sheet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Need a dessert to feed a crowd? Go with this sheet cake

It simply wouldn’t feel like Easter without a carrot cake on the table. And this one can feed about 18 people. 

I’m guessing you also have a big dinner to tackle. So I recommend making it ahead of time.

21. Carrot and Coriander Soup 

If you’re searching for an Easter lunch idea, go with this carrot soup. 

It’s super cozy, making you feel all warm and fuzzy.

Use heavy cream to make it uber-rich or swap it out with extra broth for a lighter version.

22. Carrot Cake Pancakes with Cream Cheese Frosting 

If the Easter bunny could deliver breakfast, I think it would be a high stack of these pancakes. 

The chopped carrots, raisins, and warming spices in the batter make it taste just like carrot cake.

It even has a cream cheese frosting to match!

Dessert for breakfast? That’s a big yes!

23. Carrot Zucchini Cake

Did your spring garden gift you carrots and zucchini? Turn them into an Easter cake

I love sneaking veggies into desserts. Especially when it tastes this good. 

Bake them on a sheet pan, and you’ll have enough squares to feed a large gathering. 

However, I won’t tell if you sneak a few extra slices into your freezer for later.

24. Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Carrots

Add more substance to your carrots by tossing sweet potatoes in the mix. 

The two go great together and taste even better with cinnamon, sugar, and ginger.

You could also go the savory route with dried herbs instead.

Either way, they have the same cook time when you roast them in the air fryer.

25. Maple Bacon Wrapped Carrots

Nobody can pass on carrots when you wrap them in bacon!

Sweet, salty, fatty, and fresh, they’re a scrumptious flavor combination.

As if that’s not perfect enough, they’re basted with a maple Sriracha sauce.

These are great as an Easter appetizer or side. However you serve them, you might want to double up!
