The One That Nearly Stole The Show – Carrot Soufflé from Cooking Light

Ever watched a movie where the supporting actor or actress nearly out shined the main actor or actress?  This is what nearly happened when Kevin made this side to accompany the fresh roasted ham that I made for Thanksgiving.  I originally wanted a sweet potato casserole, but Kevin wanted something unique, and the result was uniquely delicious!  Though it is called a soufflé, it is not really a soufflé; it was a puree that was light and airy, smooth and silky, sweet without being tooth achingly so.  It changed the minds of even the most stubborn of carrot haters; we had family members whom abhor carrots went back for seconds and thirds!  One could say this was a game changer, sweet potato casserole, watch out!
