My ricer is not only good to use for mashed potatoes it can be used for other vegetables and fruit as well. I decided to make some chilli carrots to go with a lovely piece of hake. Carrots is one of those vegetables that you will always find in my fridge. I use my ricer a lot and it is one of those kitchen gadgets I can highly recommend. I know that on my recommendation a few bloggers have purchased one. And they are super happy with the results. Just make sure it is sturdy.
I am a lazy cook during the week and I do not bother to peel my potatoes before cooking them. The ricer does the job of removing the skin with ease. I would do the same with carrots but my dogs love carrot peels and ends. And I do not want to deny them this treat. Raw vegetables are great for dogs and mine get to eat tomatoes, cabbage and any other crunchy vegetable they like. I give them the bits that would normally be thrown away. This way I am also reducing my wastage.
- 3 carrots
- 15 g butter
- 0.625 mls dried chilli flakes (or more if you like them hot)
- steam your carrots until soft
- remove them from the pot
- add the butter to a pot on a low heat
- rice in the carrots
- season with salt and the chilli
- mix well and add more butter if needed

What a brilliant idea – yummy. A ricer is on my lift to buy when we return home, currently I squish my spuds through a sieve, not sure if I will be able to get it right with the carrots though – might just use a traditional masher.
a traditional masher will work better than a sieve for sure. I can recommend the one I got from yuppiechef. It is the third one I tried and it works the best 🙂
oooo this looks really healthy and yummy too!! Will try the carrot thing tonight! 🙂 But a traditional masher will have to to! 🙂
A traditional masher works perfectly, it is just easier with the ricer 🙂 Let me know how this works out for you!
This sound like a great way for me to get Keith to eat carrots – He loves chilli so I’m sure he’ll love the spicy punch.
you can even add those lovely fresh chillies from your garden. I dry mine so I can have all year round 🙂
This is a nice way to have carrots. I’m not so fond of them, but I like this version. It sounds both delicate and spicy. 🙂
It makes carrots far nicer than just plain boiled 🙂
