Shake up your vegetable routine with my super-simple carrot & ginger soufflé, made with coconut flour! It is vegan, grain-free, healthy, and so very delicious!
- 1 pound peeled, coarsely chopped carrots
- 2/3 cup full-fat coconut milk (well-stirred before measuring)
- 2 and 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- In a large saucepan with a steamer attachment inserted, steam the carrots for 15 to 20 minutes until very tender. Remove from heat and cool slightly or completely.
- Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or spray an 11×7-inch or 9-inch square baking dish.
- In a food processor, process the carrots, coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla and lemon juice until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients; pulse until blended.
- Scrape the carrot mixture into the prepared pan, smoothing the top.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes until lightly puffed and edges are just beginning to turn golden brown. Serve!
Storage: Store the completely cooled leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Re-warm in the microwave at 50% power. (I do not recommend freezing).
Coconut Milk Options: Full-fat coconut milk plays the role of both milk and fat in this recipe. If you want or need to replace it, I recommend the following: Use 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk AND 1 and 1/2 tablespoons oil/fat of your choice
