Hello, I hope you all are having a gorgeous Monday : )
I have been super busy lately finishing up my driving classes and working like crazy. Today I get to chill out and relax until about five, and then I have to go to my final driving class until nine-thirty! I still can’t believe that I am finishing up my classes. Now I have been tinkering around in the kitchen and last night I came up with a new little recipe – it turned out super yummy! In a previous post I mentioned my love of alfalfa sprouts and how I hadn’t had them in a while well lookie and what my mom brought home for me!
alfalfa sprouts! yay!
Boy am I an easy girl to please – forget the chocolates and sweets all you have to do is buy me some sprouts and ill be one happy camper! Inspired by these gorgeous tasty crunchies I wanted to try my hand at making something a little fancier than my usual so I give you – Savory Carrot Cakes with Scallions & Alfalfa Sprouts. Hope you like them!
Savory Carrot Cakes with Scallions and Alfalfa Sprouts
- mini carrot cakes with scallions & alfalfa sprouts
Carrot cake base
3 cups of pulp from carrots, cucumber, apple
1/2 cup of scallions – finely chopped
1/2 cup of white onions – chopped
1 jalapeno pepper – diced
1/2 red bell pepper – finely chopped
1 tomato – chopped
1 teaspoon water
organic curry powder (to taste)
cilantro – 2 palmfuls dry
rosemary – 1 palmful
In a bowl place your carrot/cucumber/apple pulp along with your scallions, white onion, jalapeno, red pepper and tomatoes. Mix well. Add 1 teaspoon of water, curry powder, cilantro, rosemary and mix again.
Adding the water to the pulp gives it a nice consistency that allows you to mold it – if you find that your cakes are too dry try adding a little bit more water.
To mold into cakes spoon the mixture into a little cups or molds. I used my teeny ramekins – and press gently with the back of a spoon until the cup/mold is filled. Placing a serving plate over top of the ramekin hold down and quickly flipping it over. Give the top of the ramekin a quick tap and carefully remove.
Add your desired garnish and enjoy!
Ive got more food pictures for you : )
my tasty salad toppings!
Yes I am still on my salad kick – I can’t seem to eat enough leafy greens. At the grocery store in addition to all of the usual stuff we also picked up some cauliflower. Now I don’t believe that I have ever bought raw cauliflower before and I love it. Its crumbly and crunchy and has a sweet/neutral flavor that I can tell can be used well in any dish.
oh how i love sweet corn!
this was so good!
Go and and be sure to enjoy the rest of your day – thanks for reading!
