IMBB#14: Orange You Hungry

Foodgooat's theme for the 14th version of Is My Blog Burning was Orange You Hungry (say it in an American twang-- "Aaaaaah", sigh the Antipodeans).

Orange as in orange-coloured foods or spices, or products even.

What to cook? I thought of Aussie favourites like pumpkin soup and pumpkin scones. Then I thought about orange poppyseed cake and sweet potato chips.

But then I thought, why make things difficult when you can do amazing things with basics? Like the good ol' carrot. I love carrots!

And suddenly the kitchen became an Iron Chef-like stadium when I found myself with not one, but three orange entries! No I didn't write out my menu in calligraphy, and there were no capsicum-chomping comperes to be found; but I did have a small judging panel who giggled, philosophised and critiqued appropriately.

I ended up with an international spectrum of three dishes: tarka dhal; Moroccan carrot dip and German carrots cooked in beer... yes, you heard me right. Beer. Scroll down (or click on the pics) for all the details...

For a full summary of all the orange-themed recipes, check out ladygoat's wrap-up at Foodgoat.

    Hi AG,

    Allez Cuisine! =)

    What 3 entries? You did good enough to make Sakai and Morimoto proud.

    My entry, which will be up later today, is quite different. Initially I thought of using carrots, but you'll see what I came up with.

    wow! Well done!! 3 entries!!!
    The dhal looks yummy, and the dip looks lovely...I am thinking the german carrots must have went really well with beer!

    Hi AG,

    My entry was sent in but with just one photo. I tried to take another, but my camera didn't cooperate. *sigh*

    I have a recipe for carrot ice cream if you want one. =)
