  • 4 large carrots
  • Water

Making this classic dish couldn’t be easier! You only need two ingredients and basic cooking equipment.

Equipment Needed

  • Vegetable peeler or knife
  • Cutting board
  • Small pot with a lid
  • Blender or food processor

Step by Step Guide

  1. Begin by washing the carrots thoroughly under running water.
  2. Use a vegetable peeler or knife to peel each carrot completely.
  3. Cut off and discard both ends of every single carrot.

Note: Ensure all green tops of the carrots are removed as they can contain harmful toxins

  1. Chop up each peeled carrot into small chunks, ideally less than an inch in length.

  2. Place these chopped-up pieces into a medium-sized pot filled with enough water to cover them.

6.Cook on high heat until boiling then turn down the heat so that it simmers gently with its lid on.

7.Check frequently (every 5 minutes)to ensure there is enough water inside so that it doesn’t boil dry, add more water if needed.

8.Once cooked start draining off any excess liquid using a colander while saving this nutrient-rich liquid in case you will need some later.

9.Transfer the cooked diced tender juicy orange delights(oops we mean carrots) onto either blender or food processor(not forgetting what you saved earlier -obviously not just anything but extra nutrient juice).

10.Puree until smooth,(the smoother better cause mealtimes are messy enough).

  1. You can serve carrot puree immediately after it’s cooked or store in the refrigerator for later use (less work next time).

12.You can choose to add a pinch of salt to the served food just as you do with your meal but that’s optional.

Tips and Tricks

  • Always ensure to peel each carrot well before cooking.

  • Put the pot lid on when heating up your water until boiling, this helps save energy by maintaining heat inside rather than dissipating it into thin air.

-You may want to mix in extras like milk or butter when pureeing; majority moms report this makes their babies think they’re having fancy gourmet meals.
