Cauliflower Cumin Dip With Endive And Rainbow Carrot Dippers by @LORINDABREEZE
Using bright and colorful rainbow carrots take standard crudité to the next level. They make the perfect vessel for this creamy cauliflower dip made with greek yogurt!

Chicory can be quite bitter, but the sweet persimmons add a nice balance of flavor here.

Roasted Carrots With Pistachio And Carrot Top Pesto by @ABEAUTIFULPLATE
Truly root to stem, the whole carrot (stem and all) is used in this simple dish! Adding a pesto makes standard roasted vegetables more interesting and flavorful.

Every fall we harvest wild cranberries as a family and freeze our bounty to enjoy all winter long. I love the idea of including these beautiful, tart berries in stuffing!
