Comments on this Recipe

This serves way more than 6 people! And the carrots need to be pureed in the food processor in batches. But it is delicious.

I've never eaten my carrots in this way & I was scared to try, but decided why not what the heck. I'm so glad I did, this recipe instantly became one of my favorites.
