Does it happens to you that you are extremely busy, and you do not have time, but when you think about it, you can’t really tell what you have done all this time?
It happens to me too often.
Sometimes I get up early in the morning, and then suddenly is the afternoon and I run to make the dinner, laundry, cleaning. But what I did? Nothing. A virtually nothing that would justify such a terrible delay.
I am reading. Since my Kindle and I became fiends and I discovered the option of free books on Amazon, I read everything. Of some of it I’m ashamed to admit, but who of us doesn’t have these little “guilty pleasures”?
In addition to these unnamed guilty positions, I read a lot of things devoted to veganism, and especially veganism in sport. Each of us wants to be healthy, and there is no simpler way to diseases like malnutrition. And malnutrition can happens, especially when one is accustomed to a diet, weight loss, calorie counting, extremely easily. So I try to gather as much knowledge as it possible.
I also read things recommended to me by friends, and there is a huge range of topics. Since antiquity, the Elizabethan poetry, to military formations and travel into space. Ah, and fiction.
Sometimes I read several books at a time, sometimes I get stuck in one position and start reading titles from the bibliography. I’m telling you – reading is devourer of time.
There is also Netflix. The gym. Games. Hobby, which I never have time – embroidery. A day has 24 hours.
I try to embrace, plan, make other things, but “just one more chapter” ends with a lack of sleep or lack of time… And then I try to embrace this lack of time and try to catch the Almighty between books, movies, to take some pictures, and finally write a post. 🙂 Did I make it? Judge for yourself.
Today I present to you the first recipe in a „vegan Easter” series. I have for you carrot „salmon”, which goes perfectly with pastes for bread.
My salmon is strongly spicy – thanks to chili flakes – so fits into each of the pastes, which I will show you. However, the best fit is horseradish cheese.
If you do not like to breathe fire, instead of chili flakes add the sweet paprika.
2 – 4 carrots
2 sheets nori seaweed
1 tablespoon tamari (or soy sauce)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1 teaspoon chili flakes (if you do not like very spicy food, give a second teaspoon sweet paprika)
2 – 3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup water
1 teaspoon salt smoked (if you do not have smoked salt, you can use 1 tsp smoked paprika instead of 1 tsp sweet paprika. Or add liquid smoke)
1 teaspoon black pepper
- Mix marinade ingredients (preferably in a jar).
- Add to marinade crumbled nori sheets.
- Peel the carrots and with peeler (or mandolin) cut into slices/ribbons.
- Carrots steam for approx. 5 – 7 minutes till carrots are soft. You can also blanche and cook them for a few minutes.
- Soft carrots rinse in cold water and dry it lightly.
- Carrots translate into a container (a plastic box, flat pot or casserole dish), pour the marinade.
- Let stand in the refrigerator for min. 24 hours.
Finished “salmon” you can use for salads, on sandwiches or sushi. Bon Appetit!
