I thought this recipe was EXCELLENT. Tasted very similiar to pumpkin pie (which I happen to love, but have no interest in making from scratch!). It's healthy (at least relative to other pies!) because of the carrots as well. One tip I have, you don't need a food processor to puree the carrots (I don't own one). I put the carrots in my steamer for a little bit. Then put the carrots in the bowl that I was going to use anyway, and smushed them by using my hand held blender. Worked out great! Highly recommend this recipe!

great pie I've made this before but I boiled the carrots in the honey and added ginger as this really compliments the carrots well....yummy

This pie is absolutely delicious! It is very similar to sweet potato pie and pumpkin pie. My family really enjoyed it and wants me to make it for thanksgiving. I added more walnuts then it called for both whole and blended and itt turned out great!

Surprisingly good! I tried to use my hand blender to mix the carrots, but it didn't work too well...carrots should be mushy for that to work. I'll use my blender next time. I thought 1 tsp of nutmeg would be overpowering, but it wasn't. Very excellent flavour, and the added nuts give it a nice crunch!

Tastes like a sweet potato pie, with a little crunch. This was a surprise favorite.
