Christmas Carrot Competition

We are delighted to announce our fourth and final Lovethegarden vegetable garden competition of 2011: the Christmas Carrot Competition! Our new independent guest judge will be Niamh Shields, food blogger at Eat Like a Girl and author of the cookbook ‘Comfort & Spice’.

Niamh will be looking for culinary creativity with carrots and will reward the three runners-up with a copy of her book. If you manage to write the most creative and scrumptious carrot recipe, you will receive a £200 restaurant voucher to any UK restaurant of your choice!

Entering the competition is easy. All you need to do is:

  1. Share a carrot recipe on your own blog;
  2. Mention the competition in the post;
  3. Tell us by emailing the URL of your entry before 21st December 2011.

The orange root vegetable is a traditional ingredient for Christmas dinners, but your recipe doesn’t have to be Christmas themed. Recipes for soups, salads, stir-fries and even cakes with this versatile vegetable are more than welcome too.

We launched the first competition to find the best recipes for garden vegetables in February 2011, which encouraged bloggers to be creative with cabbage. The winner was Karolina with her Cabbage & Mushroom Pasties. In August, David Hall won the Potty for Potatoes competition with his Hot potato, bacon and nasturtium salad and the winner of the Taste for Tomatoes competition was Nic from Cherrapeno with her Summer Tomato Tart with Chilli Cheese Pastry.

This is your chance to win a £200 restaurant voucher with your creative carrot recipe!

It’s a fact well-known that home-grown carrots are much tastier than most store-bought ones. If thinking about all the mouth-watering possibilities is giving you a craving for carrots, find out how to grow your own vegetables now!

The deadline is 11.59pm (UK time) on 21th December 2011. For more information, read the terms and conditions.
