Easy, quick and yummy!
If you’re looking to change from your usual sidedishes, and to change from the usual (yet super delish) mashed potatoes, go for the mashed carrots!!
Yes my friends, mashed carrots are absolutely delicious!! My kids love them…
- it’s really cheap
- it’s really easy to prepare
- you can re-heat very easily!
Don’t you call that pure happiness??
And you won’t need a lot of ingredients (my little extra “je ne sais quoi” is to add a pinch of ground cumin since its taste matches very well with carrots) and little equipments… It’s even a recipe that you can make with your little ones who will enjoy mashing the vegetables with the potato masher!
Talking about that, the utensils you need are:
A large sauce pan,
A potato masher,
A cutting board
And a sharp knife.
You have all that already?
Hop! in the kitchen!
The recipe, Chef!
