I found this very interesting flavor wise and served it with celery sticks and pita bread wedges at a work potluck. I was received with mixed reviews.

Sweet and healthy. I will definitely make this again.

taste was nice and different but it turned out more like a soup so i could not take it to a work party. not enough time to buy more carrots and boil them up.
