Recipe for Carrot Soufflé
CARROTS. Slice up about 3 pounds of carrots. Bring a pot of water to boil and boil the carrots for about 15 minutes or until they are tender. Drain the carrots and set aside.
PREP. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
PUREE. In a food processor with a knife blade, add all of the ingredients (except the sugar!) and process until smooth. Pour this mixture into a large bowl and fold in the sugar.
BAKE. Lightly grease two 8×8 baking pans. Pour in the souffle mixture and bake them both for 1 hour. Take out and enjoy!
We love to enjoy this recipe warm, but you better believe enjoying it nice and cool is great too!
To make carrot soufflé ahead of time, cook the carrots and refrigerate up to 24 hours in advance. Let them come to room temp before adding them to the food processor.
STORE the soufflé in an airtight container for up to 4-5 days.
FREEZE in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Let thaw overnight in fridge before reheating.
REHEAT in the microwave, or we prefer to stick them back in a low temp over for the best texture.

This looked very good yet my family is not huge carrot eaters. Is this something you could have as a side dish rather then a dessert to get family to eat carrots, or would you say it is strictly a dessert only recipe?
You know..it was hard to decide if it was a side or dessert. It’s definitely sweet, but you could for sure have it as a side. My picky eaters really liked it!

Knowing You were hesitant to try this at first actually is what got me to try it myself. It really was good!!!
