Smokey No-nova

These little bites make a great brunchy appetizer!

I was in a fun and fancy free mood, I was also craving a bagel and lox. A quick google search confirmed a plant version is possible, my new mission: Create and devour.

Disclaimer*, these carrots will not fool anyone into thinking it is salmon. However, they make a delicious and satisfying alternative!

I used a peeler to shave my carrots nice and thin. I also opted to keep my carrots raw. Just massage them, let them marinate for a few minutes and they are ready to go!

I decided to serve my carrots on toasted baguette slices but these carrots can be added to a bagel, salad, sandwich or pizza!

You can use your favorite 'cream cheese or nut cheese' spread on the toast points. I made a quick sunflower seed spread.
