Recipe by Dreamer in Ontario

This recipe is from Vegetarian Times.. To speed up preparation, use pre-grated carrots, available in most supermarkets. You can make fresh breadcrumbs by trimming and discarding crusts from firm, fresh sandwich bread. Tear bread into pieces and whirl in a food processor or blender until crumbs form. One slice makes about 1/2 cup. The salsa can be made up to 2 days ahead and kept in the refrigerator.
