Carrot In Carrot Out

We are growing carrots for the first time in year sand they seem to be doing well from the look of the healthy fronds, but I think its a little while when we come to harvest them. So it is no surprise that D has been coming home with a bag every time he has gone to the supermarket. I then wonder what to do with them, the last time i made Chilli Carrot Pasta Salad, but sometimes they have found their way to the compost bin. 

Here are a few recipes that have featured at home of late. 
D actually made coleslaw with them on of of the days, served with homegrown peas and broad beans and homemade  panko crumbed Seitan Chick n. 
Last week I saw Johanna's Carrot Oat Slice and decided to make them as a change from our usual oat bars aka flapjacks.  
My carrot oat slices were not as glossy and golden on the top as Johanna's, but they were satisfying. A healthy cross between carrot cake and oat bars. Johanna recommended prunes and nuts, I didn't have any nuts in the house, or prunes - so just added a handful of raisins. 
I also made this Curried Carrot, Green Pepper and chickpea recipe as a wrap filling, not that dissimilar from Coleslaw Curry.
But instead of rolling it up, this time I pressed them in my panini press - Sorry I didn't get a picture, hunger pangs would not allow me too. But here is a picture of a similar recipe, if you want to get an idea of what the finished dish looked like
I am sharing this curried toasted wrap filled with mildly spiced carrots, green pepper and chickpeas  with Soup, Salad and Sammies hosted by Kahakai Kitchen
And if you tempted by these healthy carrot treats, follow this link to Johanna's blog for the recipe - it's also vegan!


  1. Thanks for the shoutout - glad you enjoyed the carrot slice - it was quite moist but a nice change for me. We tend to buy a bag of carrots and we either whizz through or I despair of using them and add lots to stews and soups. I do love to make coleslaw and had some this week with tacos. I saw your comment on my blog about cat - made me laugh but will change it when I have more energy. Good luck with your own carrots - sounds exciting.

    1. Your very welcome and indeed they made a nice change from the flapjacks. I hope you find more energy, but moreso find time to rest.

  2. All of your carrot dishes look delicious. Thanks for sharing your wrap with Souper Sundays this week! ;-)

  3. I'm such a fan of wraps. I love your chickpea idea.

  4. Glad you posted the link. So many great recipes and I am jealous of your carrot harvet! It's so hot here in north Florida that growing season is over.
