This recipe tastes even better the next day! When I make it again, I think I will double the recipe so I have leftovers.

Very tasty recipe and easy to prepare with ingredients we almost always have on hand. 
 

I made this for my family this weekend and my dad asked me why I didn't make more. He loved it and it looks like everyone else did too.

Really wish i pay more atttenion to the Photo,  I used the finest grate i had and kind of have asian carrot mush.  It is still tasty though.  I also did not have a Jar but i did have a protien shake mixer. Looking foward to leftover for lunch. 

I made this recipe subbing parsnip for half of the carrot. It added some 'herbal notes' that were pleasant.
