“If it ain’t broke …”
While trying to nudge my eating habits toward healthy, I sometimes purchase food items that are “good” for me that end up languishing in the fridge until they die of natural causes. Two of these items are carrots and celery.
I truly enjoy these two foods in soup, but when there are leftover amounts that I tell myself would be nutritious snacks, the snacking, generally, doesn’t happen. But I had a brilliant idea! Aren’t they all.
raw carrots, sliced
raw celery, sliced
a bit of oil
1 t more or less, curry powder
Salt to taste
Place the carrots and celery into a pan and toss with a bit of oil. Cover the pan with foil. Roast for about an hour or until the veggies are tender.
Roasted and Ready
Transfer the veggies to a chopper, add the curry powder and salt, and whirl the veggies into a pate’. That’s a fancy word for paste.
This resulting pate’ was truly delicious. Because I love wraps, as a good way to eat greens, this is what became of my pate’.
Jalepenos and baby spinach topped this light tasting pate’ for a wonderful rollup to go with some soup. Lots of veggies for a healthy lunch. I’m going to experiment with other veggie combos. So easy!
