Is there ever a time when you don't have carrots in your refrigerator? If you are like us, the answer is no. I have to confess, they are not just for our consumption, they also happen to be a favorite of our Laborador Retriever. I have discovered a way to give a new life to your next sandwich with this spread that also includes white beans, ginger and turmeric. It worked in this wrap as well as mixed in with a hard boiled egg on toast. What sandwich will you be adding it to?
