Veggie Sculpture Recipe

Posted on August 03, 2016

Vegetables are great starters to a meal. They also make a filling snack when paired with a little protein such as peanut butter, hummus or cheese. These whimsical creations are an excellent addition to a theme based celebration or as a way to get vegetables into a persnickety eater. These are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

Kids love bugs and crawly things. Here are some they can eat. It is extra fun to feature your creatures on a botanical Zak plate. Here is a salute to spring with a big horned beetle for a little excitement. A couple of spinach leaves are in the background. Celery stalks are the mushroom stems.

Create away! Put the hummus in a plastic zip lock bag with a corner snipped off to pipe the hummus along the snake’s back. To create the bees, slice the olive for the bee’s main body part almost all the way through. Spread the sections slightly and pipe the hummus into the spaces. Hopefully, your picky little bug eater will find these hard to resist.

This perky little flower pot and blossom has spring tulips (pepper tops) growing out of peanut butter on celery stalk stems. The blossom is sliced apple on a bed of spinach leaves.

Here is an idea for a starter for a Hawaiian themed meal. The palm leaves are apples. Macadamia nuts stand in for coconuts while blue chips serve as waves washing up on a peanut butter beach.

There are so many possibilities. Have fun and create the perfect vegetable and fruit sculptures to fit your entertaining needs or to just make mealtime fun
