Carrots in a Blanket

Pigs in a blanket is one of my most favorite of all the times. So, when we went mostly vegan/vegetarian, this was a struggle to substitute. Look, it’s not the same. But, it’s pretty delicious and pretty healthy too! I use a vegan puff pastry I’ve found but sometimes I can only find the vegetrian one, so you’d have to pay attention to the ingredient list based on your lifestyle.


Ingredients:

  • 1 roll puff pastry 
  • 1 bag baby carrots 
  • 1 tsp chili powder 
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • Dijon or stone ground mustard for dipping 

Directions:

  1. Toss the carrots in the chili powder and cumin and place on baking sheet. 
  2. Roast carrots for about 20 mins on 400, depending on your oven. You want them mostly cooked through, but you’re going to bake them again so make sure they’re still a little hard and not completely soft.
  3. Cut the puffy pastry using a pizza cutter into small squares to wrap around your carrots.
  4. Wrap your carrots and put in the oven (I had a few leftover carrots I just threw them in there as an extra snack), and bake based on the directions of your puff pastry.
