One, it seems a little weird to me, you don’t make cakes out of carrots right?
Who knows… I am probably missing out on something delicious just because of my own sensitivities.
Growing up as a vegan, well being a vegan in general I suppose, you just notice being different more when you are a kid.
Being vegan often brought the question, “Do you eat carrot cake?” As if that is the only cake a vegan can have… one made of carrots.
I have this general prejudice against other foods too. Like zucchini, another food non-vegans seem to assume vegans eat mass quantities of.
Again, I know I am missing out. Some people love zucchini but I just can’t get past the stereotype I associate with it.
I suppose never say never- I just put some zucchini in a mix of vegetables to stuff some burritos with the other day. And I do happen to LOVE carrot juice.
So I guess I am eating them, but they have all the other veggies around them to disguise them. (Shh…please don’t tell
I hope that you can eat without being bothered by stereotypes that just really don’t matter.
In celebration of that, I posted a link to what looks like a great carrot cake recipe…
I haven’t tried it myself, but maybe someday I will. Any day is a good day to turn over a new leaf, so long as it is a good leaf.
Do you enjoy vegan carrot cake? Am I missing out??
