This is such a stunningly awful recipe that I felt I had to comment in order to counter those rave reviews - thick, bland, starchy ... no hint of apples (an intriguiing ingredient, I thought), indeed, little taste of those beautiful organic carrots I wasted. .I followed the recipe to the letter (always do the first time I used a recipe) and the results tasted likethe baby food carrots we used to buy back before they stopped adding salt. I was finally forced to make a change at the end, adding 500ml of vegetable stock to produce a consistency capable of pouring. Speaking of which, after my husband and I had a bowl each, I poured therest out .

The combo of carrots & apples is amazing--never would've thought of putting them together! Deleted the rice & just added some fat free half & half at the end for a little "healthy" creaminess. Thanks for sharing! I will be making this again very soon.

I have been asked for this recipe again and again. It is one of our favorites. I always serve it with a dollop of creamy goat cheese in the middle. It's the icing on the cake!
