Carrot salmon on cashew cream cheese

Carrot Salmon finally gives me the answers I’ve been looking for for so long. What do I do, please, when I’m really in the mood for Fish have? Hmmm, go to the supermarket and buy a salmon substitute? Yes, certainly a possibility, however, you can also do it yourself quite simply. New Year’s Eve is virtually before the door and you can not early enough the appropriate appetizers in mind. Admittedly, I was always a little skeptical about whether that tastes good with Carrot . But then I was even more surprised when I tasted the result. The creamy cashew cream cheese is definitely the perfect combo. Are you ready?

Carrot salmon meets cashew cream cheese

Some of the not or not so long Vegan ask the question, why do you have to replace salmon? This is a similar question to why Vegan a Meat substitute “need” or why make a sausage that is not meat? My answer is always very simple, because it tastes good and because everything is allowed. Especially with the Fish I have two personal answers as to why I am very happy to do without it. First, there are now great microalgae oils that cover the omega-3, DHA and EPA needs wonderfully and secondly, the oceans are unfortunately increasingly polluted. My favorite product, which I use regularly myself, I have linked here ( ). Note: I purchased this product myself and have no affiliation with the company.

It’s vegan appetizer time – carrot salmon

Let’s get to the essentials, today’s recipe. It is really very simple to implement:

  1. PEELING THE CARROTS: These are very finely “peeled” with a vegetable peeler, so that fine slices are obtained. This is done using the whole carrot (see video).
  2. COOKING: The carrot slices are then cooked in boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes, strained and rinsed with cold water.
  3. MARINATING: This is followed by marinating in olive oil, lemon juice, caper stock, capers, fresh dill, nori leaves and salt. If you like smoked salmon, add a dash of liquid smoke.
  4. DONE: After the carrots have steeped in the broth for an hour (or even overnight if you like), they can be eaten immediately.

TIP: Depending on how firm to the bite you want the “salmon” to be, you can vary the cooking time of the carrots. At 2 minutes they are still a little crunchier, at 4-5 then already well soft.

The only thing missing is the cream cheese, which could not be simpler. Soak cashews , together with lemon juice, nutritional yeast, Vegetable milk and salt in a powerful blender to a fine cream. Depending on which blender is used, like a sip of Vegetable milk to it. That’s it!

New Year’s Eve vegan? Oh yes, I’m coming.

Especially on a fresh sourdough bread or one you have made yourself made bagel the combination of cream cheese and salmon is particularly fine. If you want to serve appetizers you can also use small slices of brown bread as a base. Maybe you are still looking for tips for a complete W eihnachtsmenü ?
