On my recent visit to the Great North, I bought a package of my favourite raw carrot wraps. They are so good!!! But super pricey :/ And since I can’t seem to find anything like that in the area I live anyway – it inspired me to try making my own.
Full disclosure… the food pictures suck! I had this great idea in mind of how beautiful they would look when I photographed them. I even planned a picnic lunch to the park and thought it would be a great photo session. Well… we ended up running late. The wraps didn’t “wrap” and we ate them more like bread. And the pictures aren’t great. I thought about re-making the wraps to re-take better pictures. And then said “screw it!”. I worked hard on these wraps and they turned out well and we really enjoyed our picnic lunch. I’ll continue to work on my food photography skills, but until then – here you are =)
Rawsome Carrot Wraps (makes 2 wraps)
5-6 medium carrots, washed peeled & shredded in your food processor (use the shred attachment – or grate them with a grater)
6 sundried tomatoes, soaked in warm water for a few minutes (I found this a little much and would try 3 or 4 next time)
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup of nutritional yeast (if you don’t LOVE nooch like I do, try a couple of tablespoons)
1/4 cup of fresh parsley (or 1 tsp dried)
a pinch of salt & pepper
Add all of your ingredients to your food processor and whir it up until well combined. You will have to add some water until you get a nice cookie-dough texture (I don’t think I used quite 1/4 cup, I just poured a bit in at a time until it looked like a nice batter).
Spread half of the mixture onto a teflex sheet and the other half on another sheet and dehydrate for 5 hours at 115f. Check it after 4 hours, it may be done, or it may need another hour.
We had a lovely lunch and here are some pics my hubby snapped of the gorgeous rose garden in bloom:
I love this last one. Isn’t it gorgeous? It looks like a sunset rose. I have no idea what kind it is, but I like my name for it =)
Sunny came along too!
Although she didn’t get to enjoy a wrap, she did feast on some lovely cucumber slices.
Have a great rest of the week! See you all back here Friday for Healthy Vegan Friday!
