So I got some adorable carrots at Bloomingfoods this morning. I realize that seems weird for a type of food to be “adorable” but I think it’s possible. If it’s in miniature form…or colorful. And these carrots are bursting with color, to say the least.
See, aren’t they? Well anyways, I’ve been determined to start ‘Saucy Saturday’s’ and something keeps coming up. Like these carrots. How could I not immediately make a recipe with them instead? And I decided on a slaw so two condiments in one day just is too much. Oh well, I shall try again next week.
I’ve only eaten this by itself so far and it is delicious! To be honest, I don’t ususually think of carrots being able to hold their own but they manage to shine in this yummy recipe. The citrus and cranberries give it a great sweet kick as well so I think I will be putting these on some veggie dogs later this week (and for sure on my usual veggie sandwiches). I hope to post a picture of them as condiments as soon as I try it out! Until then, they can handle themselves on their own.
PS psssssst, substitute the honey for agave nectar to make it vegan!
- 1 pound carrots (or about 10 medium carrots), grated
- Juice of half an orange
- juice of half a lemon
- 1/2 cup crushed pecans
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- Salt/pepper, to taste
- garnish with cilantro
Wash and grate the carrots.
Combine all ingredients together. Refridgerate for at least a half an hour so the flavors can blend.
Eat by itself or in a sandwich!
