Vichy carrots & peas in the Thermomix (carrots & peas with onion, parsley and cream)



This was a first for me. Even though I am French, I don’t recall ever eating Vichy carrots. But with a full bag about to go off and fed up with always having carrots the same way, I gave this a go. And boy, will I do this again.

It was done in no time at all, tasted delicious and is obviously full of the good stuff!

The traditional Vichy carrots don’t have peas but with 2 teenagers in the house, a bit of starch was needed. The results were fabulous.

Highly recommended!
