2 Peas [& Carrots] in a Pod

2 peas

Peas and carrots. 2 peas in pod. Traditionally, these are classic duos. I was just hungry one afternoon but was craving a light lunch. Wraps are great but all that carb is not good for those of us who are watching their carb intake. My flavor choices in this recipe are random but I promise they pair well! 2 Peas [& Carrots] in a Pod can be eaten as a snack, part of a meal or appetizer. Pairs nicely with veggie soup.
