This was a favorite recipe many years ago before low carb. It's so simple and quick to make, yet tastes delicious. Because carrots can be a bit carby, watch your serving sizes. To serve 8, each serving would be about 1/4 cup. The wonderful carrot flavor is very concentrated so a small serving is plenty. I used my food processor with the shredding blade to shred my carrots. A pound of carrots yields about 12 ounces after peeling and trimming and the counts are based on 12 ounces of carrots.
