It was a busy morning. A school day in August! I had lots of cucumbers. I had lots of carrots. I had a new carrot peeler, so I peeled the carrot and sliced the cucumber and married the two. It would make a great diy snack for kids. My kids were so keen on doing it themselves that they took them apart and re-wrapped them.
1 medium-large cucumber
1 large carrot
2-3 teaspoons Eden sesame-sea vegetable shake
2 teaspoons umeboshi plum paste
Wash the cucumber and carrot well. Slice the cucumber into thick half-inch rounds, leaving the skin on.
Peel the carrot so the peel is thick and ribbony.
Gently, wrap the carrot ribbons around the cucumber skin, using a small amount of water to make the end of the peel adhere to the already-wrapped peel.
Top with a half teaspoon dollop of umeboshi plum paste
or a sprinkle (about a half teaspoon) of the sesame-sea vegetable shake.
You could also top with a dollop of yogurt or a creamy cheese.
