So, somehow I found myself with 31 carrots.
How did this happen? Well, each week we get a box a vegies delivered, it’s great because we always have a good mix of veg in the fridge. But apparently we don’t eat as many carrots as supplied and each week a handful more make their way to the back of the fridge.
There was only one plan of action. A carrot feast!
Carrot and corn fritters with mashed avocado. I sometimes eat these with a sweet tomato relish but I couldn’t be bothered making it tonight.
Carrot salad with avocado, asparagus, roast mushroom and a very handsome boy. Jamie Oliver’s carrot salad looks better than mine though.
And as if there was any question as to what I was going to make for dessert! Vegan and gluten free carrot cake, with ‘cream cheese’ frosting. It turned out really well, a lot of gluten free cakes are dry and a lot of vegan cakes sink in the middle, but this one came out great.
I only managed to use up 11 carrots though, so maybe a few more carrot cakes are in my future. Recipes for the fritters and cake on the next page.
