It’s a Souffle Thing, Y’all!

Happy Monday y’all!
Election Day is tomorrow! Have you voted? Do I sound like a walking advertisement? Pretty much. 
It’s not like I’m throwing an election party or anything and if that is your sort of thing…more power to ya! Okay, so this weekend was definitely one of those “study study study” weekends where my mind was so burnt out on learning anatomical structures and the names of a trillion bacteria that cause diseases, that I couldn’t force myself to get creative in the kitchen. Instead, I settled for something simple, quick, and delicious Sunday afternoon while I took a break from the studying world. 
Now, I have always loved me some good ole’ southern casserole type of dishes. My grandmother is the queen of King Ranch Chicken Casserole, and I have had my fair share of sweet potato casseroles, and various casseroles with 10 cans of “cream of chicken something” in them. However, the first time I had carrot casserole, or carrot souffle, I was in utter shock. Now, I don’t really remember where I had it, but I can tell you that I had no freaking idea that it was made of carrots. It was so sweet and delicious. So, yesterday people, yesterday was all about the carrot souffle. 
Boiled me some carrots. 

Whipped em’ in a food processor with some other healthy ingredients. 

After a good time in the oven…bada-bing!
Oh, and this dish is Paleo and also super super healthy. Just saying. 

I ate it for breakfast this morning…No joke. 
This just might be on my holiday dinner menu.
