Fishbowl’s Fave recipes for fall: Recipe #4 – Carrot slaw

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Photography|Recipes and Food

Carrot slaw

Root vegetables are plentiful this time of year.

The other day we found ourselves with a few too many carrots on hand, so I grated ’em up and made this slaw out of them.

Forgive the imprecise measurements:

a few carrots
a spoonful (or two) of rice vinegar
a spoonful (or two) of sugar
a handful of peanuts (pound them a few times with a hammer to crush them)
some sliced green onion

Grate carrots. Mix vinegar and sugar. Pour over carrots. Mix. Sprinkle with peanuts and green onion. Serve.

I use the same kinda dressing for when I make a cucumber salad… I cut up an English cucumber, add diced red peppers, a bit of red onion and cut up a mango… and instead of peanuts…I chop up coriander/cilantro…

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
