Carrot & Cauliflower Buns with Twist of Parmesan and Thyme

A while back, I made these buns and I was lucky enough to still have a couple in my freezer.

On Thursday, when all of this nerve-wracking exam stuff is over, I’m going to return to Aarhus and my man and celebrate with a delicious burger made with these buns.

The recipe is a little similar to the Broccoli Buns but the taste is quite different. The cheese adds a delicious twist, and together with the thyme, these buns are perfect to snack on as they are when you have a little hunger, or as burger buns or for making sandwiches.

I love that they freeze well and if you’re like me and find yourself busy every day, it’s wonderful to have a good stock of nutritious treats like these.

I hope you’ll give these buns a try and let me know what you think in the comments.

And don’t forget to celebrate your accomplishments, big or small. Enjoy!
