At my family get togethers, the first dish to get licked clean was always the carrot souffle! The adults and kids alike would scoop an extra large helping of this delicious masterpiece. We would whine for more of this stuff and I’d always look forward to the next time it was served.
While I haven’t yet been handed down the family recipe, I have come up with my own Paleo version of the carrot souffle. It has the same texture and taste as I remember. This recipe will become a staple on my brunch menu whenever I host guests!
All you need are carrots and a few paleo-baking ingredients to throw this recipe together. I recommend double or tripling the recipe if you are hosting a group, because without a doubt people will be running back for second-helpings.
This recipe complies with the following diets:
