Ingredients

(Serves 6)
  • 10 carrots, scraped and sliced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose (plain) flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 cups fat-free milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Directions

In a large saucepan, heat the carrots, sugar and water. Cover and simmer until the carrots are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain the carrots, reserving some of the liquid. Set aside.

In a separate saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together flour, pepper, nutmeg and milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until the white sauce thickens.

In a blender or food processor, add the cooked carrots and white sauce. Puree until smooth. Add reserved liquid to desired consistency. Ladle into separate bowls and garnish each with 1 teaspoon parsley. Serve immediately.
