What to do with 6c of Shredded Carrots

I ended up shredding too many carrots in the food processor. I made a carrot cake and instead of 3 cups of shredded carrots, I ended up with 9 cups. I made the carrot cake and now I have 6 cups of shredded carrots left. Does anyone have any idea what I can make with it? I don't want to make a salad and was hoping to make some sort of savory (appetizer, soup, etc) dish.

          She already made carrot cake!!!

          I love carrot soup -- you can always make a big batch and freeze it. There are lots and lots of variations (carrot with ginger, carrot with orange and carrot with dill are some common ones), so I suggest looking at some on the web and seeing what appeals most to you.

            The best carrot soup I ever had or made is one adapted from Chez Pan. cookbook. It's just a simple soup of carrots, sauteed with garlic and onions. Some chicken stock is added and then, after everything is cooked through, it's blended. Add salt and pepper to taste.

            While carrot mixture is cooking, sautee some red bell peppers (or even better, some roasted jarred red peppers - about a cup's worth) in some butter, then puree them, too.

            Serve the carrot soup with a large dollop of the red pepper mixture on top. An amazing combo, I guarantee!

        2. Oooh, there's some great recipes for carrot leftovers on CHOW. How about a really delicious carrot-rosemary salad with currants, http://www.chow.com/recipes/10403, or you could make the Buffalo Chicken Tenders and make a mostly carrot slaw to accompany them, http://www.chow.com/recipes/10858.

          1. I've seen muffins with shredded carrots that are good.
            My mom makes a zucchini bread that's excellent - I'm sure you could substitute carrots.
