Pure Carrot Puree

Ingredients

1 pound organic carrots

Preparation

Wash and peel the carrots. Cut off the ends. Chop the carrots into thin rounds.

Steam the carrot pieces for 15 to 20 minutes, or until soft (the flat side of a metal spatula will easily mash the carrots). Reserve the liquid from the steamer.

Transfer the steamed carrot pieces to a food processor. Add 1/2 cup of the reserved liquid. Puree until smooth. Continue to add the reserved liquid in scant 1/8-cup increments until the puree reaches the desired consistency and smoothness.
