Sharon’s Vegetarian Tacos

Several years ago, while I was being treated for cancer, I had to come up with recipes that were vegetarian. I created this recipe because I knew it would be fun for my children to eat, and also nutritious. The shredded carrots replace shredded cheese so we didn’t feel like we were going without!
