This was pretty good. It was kind of like a cross between rice pudding and carrot cake. I halved the recipe. Two pounds of carrots seemed like an awful lot and half the recipe ended up being MORE than enough to feed four people. I ended up adding extra soy milk, and after tasting I added some cardamom, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla. A little bit of spice made it a LOT tastier. The cashews and dates were a nice touch.
