Now you can put the things you like on the top, how I said in the last point. Put your pizza into the oven preheated to 190 degrees (Celsius) and bake 40-45 mins. till it’s golden in color. Cut it and decorate with ketchup.
- 3 cups of freshly boiled water
I was always really sad to see all these carrot remains landing in the trash can after every carrot juice we made. I thought that we should somehow use it. After all, there must be a way to utilize those carrots!
I got the idea of making them into a halava – a piquant and sweet appetizer, which is ideal with your dinner menu, or can be served separately as a great dessert.
So what do we do?
Melt minimum 2 spoons of butter in a pan (actually the more butter the better :) and put about 2 big handfuls of the carrot remains. Then, pour a glass of water or milk on this and cover. Cook about 30 mins. and mix from time to time so that the carrots won’t stick to the pan. Now add 1 vanilla flavored sugar, 3 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons ginger powder. If someone doesn’t like ginger, or the dessert is meant for children, you can omit putting in the ginger. Kids usually don’t like spicy dishes. You can also add a handful of raisins – they underline the taste. That’s it! Healthy and delicious, you have to try it yourself.
For those of you, who don’t have a fruit juicer, or you do, but hardly ever use it, I have a different version of this halava. Grate 5 big carrots to small shreds and do the same thing as with the previous recipe, but don’t add any water or milk. The grated carrots have enough water in them, which will evaporate during the cooking and cook the carrots thoroughly. I admit that this version of halava is richer and more delicate in taste, but you have to remember that my idea was to utilize the juiced carrot remains.
On this site, I would like to post different recipes for my easy meals. I am a person who thinks that there is no sense in time-consuming cooking. I’m too impatient and I don’t like wasting my time, although on the other hand I want to care about the health of my family, so I have to combine fast cooking with healthy lifestyle. My dishes aren’t very refine but very tasty and very fast. When my beloved husband asks for a dinner, there is no greater joy for me to see his pleasantly surprised face when he sees the healthy steaming meal which appears on the table 20 – 30 minutes after being ordered. And that’s what I mean! :)
