  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced
  • 2 small potatoes, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 2 small cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced
  • Optional - 1 handful of grated cheddar cheese


  • Place the carrots and potatoes in a steamer (either an electric steamer or using a steaming basket) and sprinkle the garlic slices on top.
  • Steam for up to 30 minutes, until carrots and potatoes are soft.
  • Mash until you get your desired texture. Add in cheese, if using, and stir through until melted.
  • If the mixture is thick, add some of the steaming water or some milk to loosen it up.


If you want this to be a smoother, runnier puree: After steaming, blend the carrots until smooth. Run the potatoes through a potato ricer and then add the blended carrots and cheese and stir through. Add milk as needed to thin it out.
