Delicious is just one of the words I use to describe this dish... Simple is another and absolutely delicious... don't be frightened by the word soufflé it will finish wonderfully soft and fluffy. The kids and non carrot lovers alike will love this dish. It does have a slight zing so adjust the cayenne to suit. Preheat the oven to 180 while preparing.

- Boil 1kilo of diced carrots in salted water until cooked and then process them to a puree and place them in a large bowl.
- Add to the puree 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of saltine cracker crumbs, 1 cup of grated tasty cheese, 1/3 cup of finely chopped onion, a knob of butter, 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and some salt and cracked black pepper.
- In a separate bowl, using an electric beater whisk 3 large eggs until frothy and then whisk this into the carrot mix until just combined.
- Place the mixture into a buttered greased shallow baking dish and bake for about 40 minutes until golden brown and puffed.

As a variation on the original post I have made this with red carrots ... equally as wonderful as the orange version and so simple to make it is sure to become a family favourite ... deliciously sweet and by far the best way to get the family to love cooked carrot, everyone will want a second helping.
