Carrot pure with almonds

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 mediums Carrots
1 tablespoon Butter, cut into bits
1 tablespoon Heavy cream
Grated nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon Toasted almonds

Peel the carrots, trim the ends, and cut them into 2-inch lengths.

Boil them in salted water until thoroughly cooked, 35-40 minutes depending on size and age of carrots.

Drain carrots well. Place them in a food processor or blender with the butter, cream, nutmeg, and salt and pepper, and pure. Use your own judgment to make a coarser or finer pure as you prefer.

Some possibilities for serving: garnish the plate directly, sprinkling the carrot pure with the toasted almonds; serve it in a shallow bowl, using a butter knife to make "waves: on the surface, then garnish with the almonds; or pipe the pure from a pastry bag onto plates, then sprinkle with the almonds.
