Carrot, Mango, and Apple Puree

Combine these three flavors for an out-of-this-world flavor.

July 11, 2012

Brace yourself for one of the most amazing flavor combinations you'll ever taste.  Zip, bang, pow, you won't know what hit you first: the bright orange of the betacarotene in the carrots, the sweetness of the apples, or the fresh tang of the mango. In all the years I've been cooking, this is one of the best things I've made.

3 medium carrots, peeled
1 mango, cut into chunks
2 medium 'Granny Smith' or 'Rome' apples, halved and cored


Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Arrange carrots, mango, and apples on a rimmed baking sheet and roast until fruit has browned and carrots are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
3. Scrape fruit and carrots into a blender and puree until smooth.

Makes three 1/2-cup servings
