Here’s another Flash Recipe for you guys. In case you’ve missed them in the past (they’re flash recipes, remember?), these recipes are designed to get onto your plate fast and easily. And I keep these blog posts short and sweet. Which means, less jokes and less fun. But at least the food still rocks, right?
But it does mean that I can get more food and killer recipes your way faster.
So that’s ok, right?
You know I love keeping veggies interesting and this recipe is no exception. The herbs, the pinenuts… it’s all good. And even better, the ingredients are easy to add to the recipe and prep is minimal.
On a final note, I will leave you with one tip… if your grocery story carries tri-colored carrots, go for those. They’re so 2017. And are totally bougie compared to boring ‘ol orange carrots.
