Life is a Colorful Journey.......

Even though we have dark days in our lives, life is a journey in color.....from above the stars are watching us, and the wind brings us the affection of those who we love.......
even when they are gone ....

 Carrots of Different Colors

Colour Vegetables Wraps filled with Goat Cheese and Vegetables served with Avocado Goat Cheese Quinoa

 For the breads we need:
3 cups of all purpose flour
6 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of spinach powder
1 tablespoon of beet powder
1 tablespoon of carrot powder
Warm water

In three different bowls, put 1 cup of flour, 2 tablespoon of olive oil, 1/3 teaspoon of salt, and 1 tablespoon of each vegetable powder. Add warm water until you have a smooth non-sticky dough. Let it rest for one hour.

Take a piece of dough, and roll it like an Indian bread (chapatis). I use the Indian technique to make this bread. Heat a pan at medium heat, and brush it with olive oil. Cook each bread for 1 minute each side. Set aside.

For the filling:

200 grams of goat cheese
Sun-dried tomatoes
Basil leaves chopped
Warm milk
Carrots yellow, purple, and orange (very finely sliced)

Mix the goat cheese  with sun-dried tomatoes, and basil leaves. If it is too sticky, then add warm milk or cream until you have a creamy consistency (but not liquid). Correct for salt.
In a carrot bread, spread a fine amount of tapenade, and then the goat cheese mix. Roll it.
In a beet bread (same as in the spinach bread), divide the sliced carrots. In the center, place the carrot bread with the filling and roll it. Tie it with a chive. Cut it in two to place it on a plate.

Avocado Goat Cheese Quinoa

1 cup of quinoa
2 cups of water
1 1/2 avocado
120 grams of goat cheese
Olive oil

Wash the quinoa, and cook it in 2 cups of water with salt. Mash the avocado, add olive oil, add the goat cheese. When the quinoa is cook, mix it with the avocado-goat cheese paste. Add chopped chives, olive oil, and salt if necessary. Serve it warm decorated with colour carrots......ENJOY!!
