Seedy Carrot Flatbreads with Roasted Salmon

Hold the bread. This upgrade to your lunch sandwich featuring a veggie-packed flatbread and buttery salmon is guaranteed to do away with #saddesklunch. Assemble just before serving. Instead of mustard, you can add a smear of cream cheese or labneh. And rainbow trout or arctic char are good swaps for salmon.


1/2 cup (125 mL) roasted unsalted almonds

1/2 cup (125 mL) roasted unsalted pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup (125 mL) roasted unsalted sunflower seed kernels

5 large carrots, cut into 1/2 in (1.25 cm) thick slices

2 garlic cloves, grated or finely minced

2 tsp (10 mL) fresh thyme

1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cumin

1/2 tsp (2 mL) freshly ground black pepper

1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt

2 large organic eggs

2 large organic egg whites

1 lb (450 g) wild salmon fillet

2 Tbsp (30 mL) grainy Dijon mustard

1 cup (250 mL) arugula

1 cup (250 mL) sliced roasted red pepper

Juice of 1/2 lemon


Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In food processor, pulse almonds until very finely chopped. Add pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds; pulse until coarsely chopped. Transfer mixture to large bowl. Place carrots in food processor; process until very finely chopped. Add carrots, garlic, thyme, cumin, black pepper, salt, eggs, and egg whites to bowl and mix well.

Press carrot mixture in 1/2 in (1.25 cm) thick rectangle layer onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, or until flatbread is firm and darkened around edges. Cool in pan for at least 5 minutes before slicing into 8 to 10 pieces.

Reduce oven temperature to 325 F (160 C). Line baking sheet with clean parchment paper. Place salmon on sheet, skin side down, and season with salt and pepper; bake until barely cooked through in the middle, about 15 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before breaking flesh into large chunks.

Spread mustard on carrot bread slices. Top with arugula, salmon, and roasted red pepper. Squeeze lemon juice overtop.
