Carrot Crumble/Pie


I buy carrots almost every week because they are reasonably priced, packed with antioxidants, available all year around and for their bright orang-y attractive colour. Carrots are also extremely versatile.  You can serve them raw, add them into soups/stews/casseroles, bake with them, stir fry them and the list goes on.

Since I have done all of those, I made something new for the first time - a sweet crumble for a sweet treat which can be served in two different ways; either crumbly or pressed into a tray/pan for a thin pie. A scoop of ice cream will be a wonderful addition for both too.

Ingredients
500g carrots - grated/shredded into fine stripes
70g almond flakes
50g raisins
2 tbsp ghee or butter
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
2 tbsp brown or white sugar
Method:
In heated ghee, add all the ingredients. . 
Stir over low heat for about 5 mins.
Remove from heat.
Serve warm or chilled; as a crumble or press into a spring form pan.

  1. Grating carrots is often the most tedious task at hand. The cooking is rather fast and easy. I've made something similar but had used cinnamon instead of nutmeg. Never been much of a nutmeg fan.

  3. This is really a unique pie to me. Not sure why I have never seen or heard of a carrot pie because it does sound like it would be a delicious creation. Also, it does look like a great one to go to when you crave the flavor but do not want all the fat and calories that go along with a carrot cake. Glad you posted this one Nava-yum!

  5. Oh WOW. This is such an inspiring dish. The childlike simplicity of it just fills me up to the brim with wonderjoy. So simple yet so healthy and might I add that your plating skills are simply STUPENDOUSLY SUPERB. This will be great as a snack and for those with a wweet tooth a huge dollop of ice cream will not be misplaced atop this oh so orangy treat. You have truly outdone yourself Nave. Too good.

  6. Just eat them raw or juice it, if you do not know what to do.
    But Nava, I must say I have never seen or heard a carrot pie. I think this is much more healthier than those with flour crust. This recipe is good for me to start.

  7. Yesterday we just had carrot and banana cake. This picture reminds me of that.

    It's been long time since I did some blog walking and I like the new look of your site. It is neat and loads faster and easy to read. I ditched FB and moved to Google + I never liked FB and had to spend hours to delete all the so call friends in FB. I could have easily delete the account but I have an advertising account in FB and I sometimes use that for my clients.

    Sorry about the irrelevant stuff on the comment section. I hope you are doing just great!
