Carrots... You either like them or you don’t!
I like to eat raw carrots with ranch dressing. It’s a quick side to add to frozen pizza night, right? I also love cooked carrots, and I’m always trying to find just the right recipe to make my cooked carrots taste similar to everyone’s favorite restaurant for home cooked food. I’m sure you know which restaurant I’m referring to!
I have included a recipe for cooked carrots at the bottom of the post, so you actually get two recipes in this post, carrot soufflé and cooked carrots. My secret ingredients for this carrot soufflé are the Young Living Vitality Oils.
I cannot recommend other essential oils for this recipe because the Young Living Vitality Oils are specifically for internal use. It’s always important to read the label on essential oil bottles so you know how to use the oils properly. If you want to find out more about Young Living oils and why they are some of the purest essential oils you can purchase, read Intro. to Young Living Oils.
Now for the Ingredients… Carrot Soufflé
5 cups cooked carrots
½ stick butter (4 tbsp.)
2 tsp. vanilla
1 drop Young Living cinnamon bark vitality oil*
1 drop Young Living nutmeg vitality oil*
1 tbsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. flour
¼ c. stevia baking blend
*Young Living Vitality Oils are for internal use. When using oils, mix ingredients in a glass bowl. Please see disclaimer below.
1. Cover the carrots with water and boil until cooked. I like to boil the carrots until just a tiny amount of water remains, and I don’t bother draining the water.
2. Place carrots in a mixing bowl, add butter, and mash.
3. Add eggs, vanilla, and vitality oils and mix using a hand mixer.
4. Stir in baking powder, flour, and stevia baking blend.
5. Lightly spray the baking dish with baking spray. Transfer mixture to dish, and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes. I use a round, glass baking dish.
