  • 2 pounds carrots, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick pieces
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Freshly ground pepper


  1. Place carrots in a medium saucepan, and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until carrots are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, reserving cooking liquid.

  2. Puree carrots in a blender or with a potato masher, adding cooking liquid as needed, until thinned but still chunky. Stir in salt, and season with pepper.
