"I had loads of carrots, that needed to be used, and so I thought of mashed carrots as a side. This came out well, although next time I will not add as much stock, as the carrots were a little runny. But these did taste really good!"

Step 1

NOTE: How much stock and butter you use is optional. It depends on the consistency you prefer*

Step 2

Cut the carrots into even sizes (about 1 inch or 3cm) and boil the carrots in a saucepan of boiling water until they are soft, (or until a fork or knife can be easily inserted in the carrots - boiling will take about 15 minutes.)

Step 3

Drain carrots from the water, and add the carrots back to the saucepan.

Step 4

Add the butter (if using), chicken stock, thyme, salt & pepper.

Step 5

Mash the carrots with a potato masher until smooth. (I used a stick blender).

Step 6

Serve with a sprinkle of nutmeg (if desired) and a little butter if required.
