When I was a little girl, my mom used to hide vegetables in all sorts of dishes to make sure we were getting our daily intake.

From vegetable casserole and lasagna to vegetable muffins, she was (is) a sneaky girl.

Nowadays I do a little veggie stuffing of my own. The difference is, I don’t try to hide the veggies in my dishes. I try to showcase them.

Carrot Muffins are a marvelous way to showcase the sweetness and versatility of carrots.

The fresh earthy sweetness of carrots pairs well with a variety of flavors, from curry to pork fat.

You can almost use carrots in any dish!

Here I’ve paired them with sweet tangy pineapples and fresh grated ginger to give the carrot muffins extra sweetness and zing, then I added an element of surprise…

I topped the carrot muffins with beer glaze!

Why the beer glaze?

I promise I’m not trying to be irreverent on Easter.

If you’re not a fan of beer, you could always substitute pineapple juice in the glaze. However, I find a touch of light wheaty beer compliments the heck out of the carrot, pineapple, ginger combination.

It adds that little extra something that make these muffins really shine!

    These look amazing! And I love that you used butter instead of oil. Just one quick question…the ingredient list indicates crushed pineapple in juice. Does it need to be strained before using? Or do I just scoop out a cup, juice and all, and add it to the batter? Thanks!

    I love carrot cake, so I will have to give these a try! I think I’m going to try, and pineapple juice in the glaze. What other sorts of juices would you recommend it in case I can’t find it at my grocery store?
