Carrot Soufflé

Soufflé casseroles seem to be popular dishes around the holidays, maybe because they're hot and sharable, or maybe just because they taste good. And as we've seen with some of the other items on our list of tasty holiday foods with vitamins, not everything that tastes great is bad for your health.

Add carrots to the list of veggies you can serve in a soufflé.

According to health experts, carrots are just really, really good for you. And for a lot of reasons, too.

For instance, one 10-year study on the effects of vegetables on cardiovascular disease found that orange/yellow vegetables, in particular carrots, had a highly noticeable effect on reducing risk of the disease [source: World's Healthiest Foods].

A single serving of carrots provides 407 percent RDA of vitamin A. In addition, carrots are full of vitamins K and C as well as the important B vitamins. They're also one of the best sources of beta-carotene, an antioxidant thought to reduce the chances of a number of diseases [source: World's Healthiest Foods].

You may be wondering, "Is there any meat on this list?" Fear not, fellow carnivores, our next delectable dish is often the star of the show.
