Notes

  • We use plant-based milk and butter, you can adapt to your diet preference.
  • Try making them without the butter, more milk, and a little salt and cumin, delicious spread over meatloaf.
  • Flavor to your liking, make savory or sweet.
  • Only use fresh carrots, we recommend using whole carrots over baby carrots.
