Today is a special Friday, even though most Fridays are special because they are followed by Saturdays…

But, I digress…

Today is special because it is the day I am attending a virtual baby shower for my sweet friend, Erin, of The Speckled Plate, along with several other fellow bloggers!

I was lucky to finally meet Erin in person at the Sprouts blogger shindig last year as well as at The Everything Food Conference this year. Erin, her hubs, and daughter, will be welcoming a new little baby girl (aka Baby Speckle) any day now! So, when Madison of Joyfully Mad Kitchen invited me to this virtual baby shower, I figured I would whip up these healthy-ish Ginger Carrot Tartlets to bring!

These Ginger Carrot Tartlets are so darn easy to whip up. I am thinking that the hardest part of making these little tartlets for me was bending down and contorting myself to reach into the cabinet under my sink to pull out my immersion blender.

All that’s involved in making these Ginger Carrot Tartlets is:

Peel and boil the carrots.

• Let carrots cool (I mashed them up to speed up the cooling process).

• Add carrots to a deep bowl along with some cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, salt and maple syrup.

• Use an immersion blender (or handheld mixer) to blend up the carrots and spices.

• Using a spatula, fold some whipped cream (or, coconut whipped topping if you are following a vegan diet) into the spiced carrot mixture.

• Spoon carrot mixture into a plastic bag with a nozzle attached and pipe it into mini ready made phyllo dough tarts (which are already vegan).

• Sprinkle some chopped up candied ginger onto the tarts and enjoy.

These tarts can be made the night before and stored in an airtight container until ready to eat the next day, and, these tarts are best served chilled. Also, y’all gotta check out what else is being served up at this virtual baby shower!

After drooling over all those cakes, cupcakes, dips, and goodies, I am kinda wishing this wasn’t a virtual baby shower but an in-person one as I’d LOVE to pile my plate sky high with all those treats!

Happy Friday y’all! Hoping this long weekend is wonderful for y’all!

Ginger Carrot Tartlets

Yield: 15
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Easy and so totally delicious, these little 7-ingredient Ginger Carrot Tartlets are a healthyish treat. They can easily be made vegan and are sure to be a hit with your friends and family ~ especially around the holiday season.

Ingredients

  • 5 carrots
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp cardamom
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tso ginger
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream (or coconut whipped topping)
  • 15 mini phyllo shells
  • 4 pieces candied ginger (optional)

Instructions

  1. Remove mini phyllo shells from freezer and let thaw on kitchen counter. If you'd like them extra crispy, you can bake them for 10 minutes or so - making sure they cool before you add in the filling.
  2. Peel carrots and cut them into thirds and place them in a pan. Fill pan with water so carrots are submerged. Then place pan on stove top over high heat. Bring water to a boil, then cover and let carrots cook about 15 minutes or until carrots are soft when prodded with a fork.
  3. Take cooked carrots off the stove and let cool. I mashed mine roughly to speed up the cooling. If the carrots are warm, then the whipped cream will just turn to liquid and the result will not be a fluffy carrot whipped filling.
  4. When carrots are cool, add them into a deep bowl along with the cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, ginger, salt and maple syrup. Using an immersion blender (or handheld blender or even adding mix into a high speed blender) blend spiced carrots up well. 
  5. Then, using a spatula, fold the whipped cream or coconut whipped topping into the spiced carrots.
  6. Place this carrot filling into a plastic bag with a nozzle and pipe it into the mini phyllo dough shells.
  7. Cut up candied ginger and sprinkle onto the filled Ginger Carrot Tartlets and enjoy.
