Carrot Puree

I’m mostly posting this so I don’t forget the recipe. Didn’t take a photo or anything, which is a shame, actually, because it was the prettiest plate of food I’ve eaten in a while. Served it with pork chops, green beans, and a beer-mustard pan sauce.

Puree these with: 2 tbsp butter, 5.3 oz container fat free Greek yogurt, salt and pepper


Super simple, but so good. The boy is extremely angry right now because we ran out. And now I will remember how I made it.
