EATS: Halloween Veggie Delight
Makes 2 servings
- 2 orange bell peppers
- carrot sticks
- dangling fresh herbs: thyme or parsley work well
Instead of carving our pumpkins (too much work!) this year, when I saw these gorgeous orange bell peppers at the market this morning, I knew just what to do! After giving it a thorough wash and dry, de-core the peppers. Using a sharp paring knife, carve out the eyes and mouth. Stuff in the lettuce, blueberries for the eyes, or whatever else veggies and fruits your child likes to eat. Carrots sticks are good for arms, but our carrots got eaten before they had a chance to become arms. Dangle a couple of sprigs of fresh herbs for hair tendrils, and voila! You’ve got yourself a Jack-o’-latern that is infinitely easier to make and clean. I put one of those small fairy light strings in there that worked well too.
Plumster squealed with delight when she came home and saw these. She ate both of these little creatures :)
