Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Sometimes I get ideas during yoga class. I know, thoughts come, thoughts go, but this one thought, I decided to act upon it.
We have several do’s coming up; last year I made some zucchini-tomato rollups to take to these events. I sliced the zucchini with a potato peeler. That took awhile……….. :-)
After my class I entered a kitchen store and bought a mandoline. Of course, I had to try it out right away so I bought a couple of zucchini on the way home. Wow, what a difference. At first I didn’t even realize it was cutting, the blade is so sharp.
I salted the slices and left them for awhile. I put some cashews to soak. Later in the afternoon, I grated some carrots and made a cashew cream, then filled the rolls. A touch of cumin brought an interesting note.
For the cashew cream:
1 cup cashews, soaked a couple hours, rinsed and drained
1 clove garlic, de-germed
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon tamari
½ cup water
Blend until smooth in high speed blender.
I used about 2 tablespoons of this with two medium size grated carrots and about ½ teaspoon ground cumin.
