I though I’d share with you how I made the cheese and carrot ‘coins’ that I used in the last lunch I posted. They are very easy to make, and not too time consuming either.
All you need to make them is the following;
- A large carrot, washed and peeled
- A block of cheese
- A mini cookie cutter in a shape of your choice (I used a bear)
- A sharp knife
Cut the carrot into rounds, and cut a slice of cheese with a similar thickness to the carrot rounds. From each carrot round, cut a shape using your mini cutter.
From the slice of cheese, cut a shape using the same cutter.
Slide the cheese shape into the carrot round
Repeat until you have as many ‘coins’ as you need.
You could cook the carrot before you use it, but we preferred them raw. You could also apply this technique to other vegetables, maybe cucumber rounds? Feel free to make any suggestions!
