Everything you love about carrot cake - the spices, the sweet and nutty flavors, the cream cheese frosting, and of course, the carrots! - is in this fast and simple lunch. I came up with this recipe while brainstorming new ways to use peanut butter (one of the staples of my vegetarian diet.) This grown-up alternative to the standard PBJ is a sandwich that thinks it’s dessert!
Lightly toast both halves of English muffin.
Place shredded carrots in a small bowl and sprinkle with nutmeg.
Spread peanut butter on one side of English muffin.
Spread cream cheese on other side of English muffin. Top with carrots and sprouts. Put both sides together to make a sandwich.
