ok. the sniffing drugs i'm taking are horrible. worse than last time. taste disgusting.

so i am needing nice things to eat. this is a big summer favourite in our house and the flavour fits the bill very well these days!

carrot salad made in the food processor
(based on a recipe by tessa kiros)

blitz 1/4 red onion and a big piece of fresh ginger
add about 8 big carrots (cut in chunks) and whizz up a bit more

for the dressing...
half a lemon
a few glugs of e.v. olive oil
1/4 tsp white pepper and ground cardamom
pinch of salt

...mix it all up and it tastes even better the next day
(lovely with a jacket potato and cottage cheese)

and of course i have self-prescribed a daily dose of maya gold too for the symptoms!


  1. The sniffing drugs do not sound nice but the salad sounds delicious and you definitely can't beat a bit of maya gold to take nasty tastes away.

  2. ohh - thank you for the carrot yumminess
    i am always on the look out for a new veggie supper.
    hope you are bearing up sweet girl
    thinking of you and wishing, wishing, wishing for good things :)
