Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the carrots.

Method

  1. Prepare the carrots. Peel and cut them into 2 cm pieces then boil or steam them about 15 min until they are fork-tender. Let the carrots cool down a few minutes, then purée in a food processor.
  2. Add the butter, minced garlic, orange juice, and cream, then pulse until a creamy consistency is obtained. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Reheat and serve warm.
