What’s Cooking? – Carrot Soufflé

Carrot soufflé is something that sounds more difficult than it is. We made this last Christmas for a joint family dinner, and it was gone by the end of the meal. In fact, people that didn’t like carrots liked the carrot souffle.

The dish is suitable for a meal side dish or a dessert and takes but a few simple ingredients.
