I know, I know, you are looking at that picture and saying, she’s really gone off the deep end now. She’s gotten just a little bit too obsessed with those addictive E-Trade baby commercials and is now making and showing us pictures of baby food.
And okay, while I freely admit that I truly AM obsessed with those commercials, hang in there with me on this recipe, because it really is something both easy and delicious, and contains a couple of things that you probably don’t want to be feeding your baby.
I’m talking butter.
I’m talking sour cream.
I’m talking fresh ground pepper and coarse salt, baby.
I’m the first one to admit that I am a little side-dish-challenged, so when I come across one that is as easy and silkily scrumptious as this one, I hang on for dear life. So the next time you are going to make plain old carrots as a side dish, trust me and give this one a spin. All it involves is boiling up a bunch of peeled and chopped carrots until they are nice and tender, and then whirling them in your food processor with yes, some butter, some sour cream and some salt and pepper until they are a smooth, creamy, carroty delight.
Now, THAT’S a side dish.
And that’s definitely something to smile about, baby.Print
