Golden Carrot Whip

These carrots make a great substitute for mashed potatoes, and the Vitamin A content is much higher. I use these when a meal already has a high-carbohydrate component. I usually have to double the recipe when serving more than 3 or 4 people.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 lb
baby carrots, peeled
salted water to cover
2-4 Tbsp
honey, sorghum, brown sugar, or maple syrup
1/3 c
whipping cream
1 pinch
salt, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook carrots in boiling salted water until they are very soft. They should pierce easily with a fork, just like potatoes when you cook for mashing. This may take 30 or more minutes. Drain well.
2
Place cooked carrots in mixing bowl. Add the honey or syrup and MASH WELL with a potato masher. Start with the smaller amount of sweetener and taste before adding more.
3
With a mixer, whip in the cream in a slow stream. The whipped carrots will not be as smooth as whipped potatoes, but the taste will be wonderful! Taste and add salt if desired.
4
When uniformly mixed, transfer carrots to serving dish. If you use a microwave-safe dish, you can make these a little ahead of time and reheat before placing on the table.
