Pureed Carrots with Orange and Mint

This is what my mom would call a "nursery food"- a soothing and delicious dish you want to make over and over again.

Servings 6 servings


  • 5 - 6 carrots about 1 lb., chopped
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 orange use 1/2 tsp. zest and 2 Tbsp. juice
  • 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 2 tsp. fresh mint finely chopped


  • Put the carrots in a medium saucepan, and cover them with water (just enough to cover the carrots). Stir in the salt. Bring to a boil and simmer it, covered for 25 minutes or until the carrots are fork tender. Reserving ¼ cup of the cooking water, drain the carrots.
  • Transfer the carrots to a food processor or blender, add about 1/2 the reserved water and all the orange juice, and puree until smooth (if the carrots are too thick, add the remaining water).
  • Meanwhile, put the saucepan back over low heat and melt the butter or margarine.
  • Add the carrots, mint, and orange zest to the pot and stir to combine. Serve or refrigerate for up to 3 days.
