Carrot and Potato Whip- Ridiculously easy but so versatile and smooth and just plain tasty. My mother tried to duplicate a similar dish she had at a restaurant many years ago, never had the restaurant’s, but I sure love mom’s version.
6 carrots, diced
5 potatoes, diced
1/2 small onion,diced
1 cup chicken broth
1 bay leaf
Sprig of fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon sugar
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
Salt and pepper
1. Place first 7 ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, turn down to a medium heat and cover,stirring occasionally, until the carrots are soft( fork tender ).
2. Uncover and simmer over a low heat until broth is almost gone (or drain the broth- and reserve for another use.) Remove bay leaf and thyme.
3 . Add the butter and mash by hand or use a food processor.
4. Season with salt and pepper and adjust seasoning if necessary.
Note: Spice this Carrot and Potato Whip with cayenne or hot sauce or even a pinch of nutmeg, if desired.
