Ingredients

Servings:
4
1 lb

1/4 tsp

Directions 8 steps | 70 Minutes

Step 1

Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

In the bowl of a food processor, add the baby carrots.

Step 3

Process the baby carrots until finely chopped.

Step 4

In a 1-quart sized pot on medium heat, melt the butter.

Step 5

When butter is slightly warm, add the chopped carrots and sauté until translucent, about 10 minutes.

Step 6

Stir in the oat milk and monk fruit sugar.

Step 7

Simmer on medium-low heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the moisture is completely evaporated. The carrot mixture will turn into a big lump. Stir in the cardamom until well incorporated. (See notes.)

Step 8

Transfer the carrot halwa into a serving dish and garnish it with chopped nuts. Enjoy!


Notes:

  • It is important that the heat of the stove is not too high so the mixture does not burn. Remember to continuously stir the mixture while cooking to make sure it does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
