Finishing the carrot puree -- 15 minutes

HEAT a medium-sized pan without adding any oil or butter. SAUTE the onion for a few minutes before you add the carrots and ginger. SAUTE for a few minutes more and then also Add the thyme sprigs and vegetable stock.

Put a lid on and let it cook on low heat until the carrot is soft. Make sure most of the moisture has evaporated, but to create a smooth puree it's best to have a little stock left.

REMOVE the thyme sprigs as soon as the carrots are soft enough. CREATE a smooth puree using an (immersion) blender or vegetable sieve.

SEASON with pepper and salt and serve as a delicious side dish for a lovely piece of meat or fish. Enjoy!
