Shred That Carrot Salad with Chickpeas and Nuts

carrot chickpea salad

In Honor of Go Eat a Carrot’s Anniversary

Well, it’s almost Easter weekend yet again. For those of you who are new, Go Eat a Carrot originally formed right around this time, 3 years ago I believe. Crazy how time flies! The blog has definitely evolved, where it was originally a place for me to express any and all of my thoughts, particularly those thoughts evolving around sexuality and dating, it is now mostly used to showcase my Phallic Food Diet Recipes. 

This shredded carrot salad would make a great addition to any spring-time food gathering festivities you’ve got going on. It’s also one of those interchangeable recipes, feel free to change out the chickpeas, the nuts, the dried cherries, or the herbs with whatever you have on hand that you think would work well. 

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy this delicious and healthy carrot salad recipe!

St. Patrick’s Big Banana Mint Shake

healthy shamrock shape

A tribute to the Shamrock Shake with a phallic twist

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fan of the Shamrock shake. I am not however, a big fan of the establishment in which you procure such a delicacy. Thus, I have attempted this adaptation. In honor of St. Patrick’s day, I’ve put together a healthier phallic-food centered recipe (aka a frozen banana) to try. I’m drinking this big banana mint shake right now actually, and it’s mostly good. Feel like it could use something though (probably ice cream haha) so, give it a whirl, and if you come up with an adjustment that makes it tastes EVEN better, let me know. I’ll give you a shout-out and hook you up with a digital copy of the book whenever I get it put together. 

Cheers and hope you enjoy your Irish heritage celebration wherever you happen to be! 

St. Patrick’s Big Banana Mint Shake

What You Need:

  • 1 overripe large frozen banana
  • 1/4 tsp pure peppermint extract 
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup frozen spinach
  • pink of salt
  • chocolate chips, as desired

What You Do:

Take all the ingredients, throw them into a blender, and blend until completely smooth. If you’d like, you can wait to put the chocolate chips in until the end or not at all. Also, feel free to use green food coloring instead of spinach if you’d like the less healthy version. Pour into glass, top with more chocolate chips if so desired and enjoy.

Thanks for coming!

Don’t be a Dick Charred Eggplant Soup

healthy eggplant soup

Char your tender eggplant and put in it in a blender!

This deliciously smooth soup will not only warm your soul but will help you overcome any negative energy from big dicks in your life.

Have you or someone you know been acting like a dick lately? Well, it’s time to get out the frustration by completely demolishing an eggplant in a sort of symbolic representation of what could happen if you (or someone you know) become too big of a dick. 

Big Dick Energy is way different than being a big dick. For example, BDE is all about confidence, assertiveness, compassion, whereas being a big dick is typically more about being an aggressive ego-maniac fuck boy–no body wants to be around that. 

Feed your soul and your mouth-hole with this charred eggplant soup and release anything (or anyone) that’s no longer serving you. 

Don’t Be a Dick Charred Eggplant Soup Recipe

What you Need:

  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 medium sized onion-diced
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • Salt + Pepper + Cayenne (to taste)
  • 32 ounces of vegetable (or chicken) stock
  • Juice of half a lemon

What You Do:

  1. Char the F out of the Eggplant. Watch that Eggplant BURN!!!

First poke some holes with a paring knife in that eggplant, oohh yeah, fuck you eggplant.

Next, place stabbed eggplant on a baking sheet under hot broiler, about 2 inches from flame. 

Cook for 3 or 4 minutes, get that beautiful smooth purple skin all blackened and charred, then turn and cook on other side until eggplant has gone all soft (about 4 minutes more). 

Set aside and that that eggplant cool off. Once you can touch it again remove and discard skins and roughly chop eggplant flesh. (that’s right char and chop the shit out of that eggplant).

  1. Cook it ALL Up in a Pot

You can do this next part while eggplant is charring or while it’s cooling down. 

  • Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a (medium to large sized) pot over medium-high heat. 
  • Add onion, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook until softened and beginning to color, 5 to 7 minutes. 
  • Add garlic, cayenne and reserved eggplant and cook 1 more minute.
  • Finally add broth and bring to a brisk simmer. 
  • Reduce heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes. 
  • Be sure to check seasoning and adjust the salt accordingly.
  1. Blend That F-ing Eggplant and Stuff ALL UP!

Now the fun part! Stick the tinder eggplant in a blender! 

Or, in recipe speak: purée soup in batches in blender. But this is where you can really get out some frustrations with any BIG DICKS in your life. BLEND BLEND BLEND until it’s a fucking fine puree in which you can no longer tell that the eggplant ever existed.  

After all that blending, Strain the soup through fine-meshed sieve and discard solid debris and seeds. (There was way more debris than I had anticipated soooo just watch for that… ! This was also a major mess for me, but perhaps I am, just a messy person TBD). 

Anyhoo, once it’s strained add the juice of half of a lemon. Taste again, adding more lemon juice as necessary to your own palate preferences. 

  1. Pour in a Bowl and Eat

Yum! 

Thanks for coming!

Are you really into eggplant? Well, you’re in luck!

Tickle Your Pickle Hangover Relief Drink

pickles for hangover

Replenish your wrecked body with this pickle-infused powerhouse concoction.

This hangover relief drink with pickles, carrots, ginger, lemon, and lime will help ease some of your most troubling hangover symptoms. Make this the night before you go drink so you can have it on hand in the morning (you will most likely not want to go to all the trouble if you’re feeling like ca-ca).  

Can pickle juice actually cure a hangover?

Controversy abounds as to whether or not pickle juice actually helps a person get over a night of too many cock…tails. Pickles and the juice they swim in contain vital electrolytes such as sodium and potassium; when you drink your body loses electrolytes and thus the theory states that putting them back inside you may in fact help restore balance within. 

Pickles are big part of the phallic diet. They contain probiotics which help with digestion, Vitamin K which helps with your immune system and they are low in calories yet bursting with flavor. Pickles do contain a high amount of salt, so if you’re trying to lower your salt intake or have high blood pressure, you might want to take it easy on the amount of pickles you shove down your throat every day.  

Carrots were actually first grown for medicinal purposes (and they weren’t the orange we see everywhere today). These long, hard, strong, bad boys contain vitamins B6 and K, potassium, and phosphorus– which aid in boosting the immunity and improving brain function. Something you most definitely need after a night of drinking. 

Ginger may be one of the best things you could possibly put in your body. Where your hangover is concerned–ginger helps with nausea and brain function (amongst many other amazing things).  

This recipe was made using a juicer. If you do not have a juicer I have written alternatives so you can still make it. Alright, let’s get to it.

Yes, I see you over there thinking these thoughts–you can add vodka to this if you want a Hair of the Dog vibe or if you’re like, not hungover but want to be later. Feel free to fill glass half way up and then top with soda water if you’re looking to add some extra hydration. You can also make this if you are not hungover but want some sort of enjoyable healthy juice like recipe.

It’s your life, get your carrot wet however you want.
