Fall Carrot Souffle: Great Rosh Hashanah and Holiday Side Dish

IMG_2338

My sister, Julie, got this recipe from a wonderful cook in town, Ellen Sokol. It’s perfect for the Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah coming up this weekend. It’s so similar to a sweet potato casserole, and it’s a great substitute for Thanksgiving or Christmas if you want something different this year. To make it a bit lighter, add egg whites for the eggs and cut the butter to 3/4 cup. It’s really delicious, and it’s a great way to get your kids to eat carrots.
