The Perfect Holiday Dessert
We got this from a friend who believes that Thanksgiving isn’t complete without carrot soufflé. Now that we’ve tried it and are believers, we agree! This dish is surprisingly delicious and perfect for your next holiday get together. To make this recipe, just follow these simple instructions:
Slice up about 3 pounds of carrots to begin this recipe. Just like in the picture above! That’s the perfect size, if I do say so myself. 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.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 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. 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!
Can carrot soufflé be made ahead of time? You can cook the carrots and refrigerate up to 24 hours in advance. Let them come to room temp before adding them to the food processor.
Can you freeze carrot soufflé? Yes – you can store in an airtight container for up to 4-5 days. Let thaw overnight in fridge before reheating.
How to reheat? You can microwave but we prefer to stick them back in a low temp over for the best texture.
I really hope you like this recipe as much as we did! It was such a pleasant surprise. I love finding new and different desserts to try. This one is definitely different and definitely delicious.
