Creamy Carrot Rice

Carrot juice, which replaces some of the broth in this recipe, adds a subtle sweetness that goes well with the nuttiness of the Parmesan cheese.

Creamy Carrot Rice

Source: Everyday Food, March 2004


  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup carrot juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 cup long-grain rice
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine, (optional)
  • 1/3 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Combine chicken broth, carrot juice, and 2 cups water in a 2-quart saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.

  2. Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook onion, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 minutes. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  3. Raise heat to medium; add rice, and cook, stirring until grains are translucent around the edges, about 3 minutes. Stir in wine, if using; cook until absorbed, about 2 minutes.

  4. Add 1/2 cup hot broth mixture, stirring with a wooden spoon until most liquid is absorbed. Continue adding broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until it is incorporated and rice is tender but still a little firm to the bite, 25 to 30 minutes. Stir in remaining tablespoon butter and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper. Divide among dishes, and sprinkle with parsley and more Parmesan.

    I just made this tonight & it turned out beautifully. The slight sweetness from the carrot juice is what made the dish stand out. I didn't have any carrot juice on hand, so I actually just blended two carrots with 3/4 cup of water in my Vitamix. It worked just fine. I will definitely make this again.
