Easter treats have always revolved around chocolate, so why not make a healthy swap this Easter and try out our edible garden!

Why we love this recipe:

This is a fun and simple recipe to make with children. Adults can handle the blending prep, whilst the children can help lay out the vegetables across the board, to turn it into a yummy edible Easter garden. Use vegetables that you and your child love to eat raw. Your child helping choose their favourite veggies at the supermarket is a good way to ensure that they feel connected to the activity and will enjoy eating it once prepared! This Easter activity is also a good way of trying some new veggies that your child might not have tasted or seen before. Let them have fun by exploring the veg with all their senses - sight, touch, smell, taste, and listening to all the different noises as you chop, and crunch.

Ingredients:

  • 2 packs of hummus (or your dip of choice)
  • 100g of pumpkin seeds
  • 10g of black onion seeds
  • 150g of drained sundried tomato
  • 50g of pitted black olives
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 2 slices of pumpernickel bread
  • 1 pack of chives, finely chopped
  • your choice of crudites, such as:
  • mini carrots
  • mini cucumbers
  • cherry tomatoes
  • radishes
  • tenderstem broccoli
  • baby corn
  • mini snacking peppers

Method:

  • Adult role - blend the pumpkin seeds, black onion seeds, sundried tomato, and black olives with the juice of half a lemon until you get a rough chopped paste (you could just chop all together with a knife if you don’t have a blender to hand)
  • Support your child to break the pumpernickel bread into small pieces, close to breadcrumbs (an ideal activity for little hands!)
  • Spread the hummus thickly across a serving board or serving plate
  • Support your child to spoon the seed and tomato mix, so dotted across on top of hummus
  • Sprinkle breadcrumbs across
  • Sprinkle chopped chives across
  • If age/stage appropriate, support your child to chop off a small amount of the base of each vegetable (just so they have a base to stand upright), then encourage your child to place the vegetables in lines (like an allotment), across the hummus board
  • Enjoy whilst pretending to be rabbits (optional of course!)
