CARROT & RICOTTA BAKE


COOKBOOK: Delicious - Magazine Aug 2016


I was in such a hurry on the day that I only snapped one photo (and it’s not a really good one, sorry!)

Carrots are a good source of vitamin K , potassium and antioxidants, and they are cheap to buy all year round.

Serve this bake with a large spoon, it has a soft texture.

I served it as a side dish and the family loved it! Even Mat went for seconds and he’s never really keen on carrots!


Enjoy
