  • 2 large carrots



    The carrot, with its distinctive bright orange colour, is one of the most versatile root…

  • 1½ tbsp flaky sea salt
  • 2 lapsang soushong teabags
  • slices of toasted baguette, sliced and toasted
  • vegan cream cheese
  • dried seaweed, to serve



    No matter what the shape or size, and whatever their colour,


  1. Cut the carrots into ribbons with a vegetable peeler and set aside. Pour 500ml water into a large saucepan with the salt and bring to the boil. Add the carrot ribbons and teabags and remove from the heat. Leave to steep for 20 mins until the mixture is cold and the ribbons have softened. Pour into a smaller container and chill until needed. Once cold and ready to serve, strain the carrot ribbons, discard the brine and pat dry with kitchen paper or a clean tea towel. 

  2. Spread the baguette slices with the cream cheese. Top each toast with a few carrot ribbons and a pinch of the dried seaweed, then season and serve.

I stumbled across this today and was so intrigued I had to try it. It does a pretty good job of mimicking the smoky saltiness, but I missed the oiliness that you get with smoked salmon, so I dressed some ribbons with a couple of drops of olive oil, which overpowered it with its pepper notes a bit too much. I tried it with a couple of drops of avocado oil instead, et voila! The texture and taste could certainly satisfy me if I have any smoked salmon cravings. Will definitely make again.
