Carrot Puddin

What you need: 

1 pound carrots, chopped
nondairy milk or water, as needed
nutmeg, to taste
cinnamon, to taste
cloves, to taste
ginger, to taste
1/3 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons kudzo, arrowroot, or cornstarch + 1/2 cup cold water

What you do: 

1. Steam or boil carrots until very tender. Puree carrots and cooking water in a food processor until it's as smooth as you think it will ever get. Add more water or milk to make it into a thick liquid.
2. Pour the puree back into the pot, add spices and maple syrup until it tastes just right, and heat on medium. In a cup, mix the starch with the 1/2 cup water until it's completely dissolved.
3. Pour the starch mixture into the hot liquid, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Cool the pudding in a great big bowl or in smaller bowls until it's firmed up. Serve with a smile.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

It's still cooling off, but I must say, this is quite yummy. I am very pleased to enjoy a carroty non-cake dessert!

I was skeptical of this dish, but I had 5 lbs of carrots from a juice fast a while back, so I needed to use them up! Man, was I wrong about being skeptical. This dish is amazing!  :)>>>

I'll bet this would work great as a pie with some tweaking.

Last time I made this I was short on carrots so I added a couple of apples to stretch it. Just cored, not peeled. They blended very well together and the apple taste gave it a fresh lift that was very pleasing.

I find if you use a few more carrots, no thickener is needed. I also cook the carrots *in* the milk instead of steaming. I have on occasion thickened this with cornstarch as arrowroot is unavailable where I live.

I wouldn't dub this 'pudding'. I tried a second time to thicken it after cooling to no avail. It's great regardless! It makes a wonderful carrot soup. :)

Did you add arowroot atfer it cooled? If you did maybe that's why it doesn't thicken? It always thickens for me!!

I made this with about a kilo of peeled carrots, just covered with "milk" and water, and cooked them in the "milk" and spices until done. With a little extra thickening, it makes a great "pumpkin pie" filling.

I DID make this and it's lush! I used clove, cinnamon, cardamom and minced fresh ginger. I sweetened with brown sugar because they just seemed to go together. MUCH easier than peeling pumpkin!!

Ooh yeah, isn't it divine? I'll be making this regularly!

At last a carrot dessert that isn't cake! I get far too many carrots in my veg boxes and this is another good use for them. Yumbles!

Yabbitgirl, you have to make this- it's delicious!!
