Here is another great idea to get kids to eat their veggies: A colourful garden in a plate! The recipe is really easy to put together and your kids will be fascinated by the idea of eating a garden, straight out of the ground, with this edible soil recipe.
1 cup of plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon of mayo
1 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon of chopped dill
Sea salt & pepper to taste
Mix well and spread in a round serving dish.
4 thin slices of pumpernickel bread
¼ cup of pitted Kalamata olive
Preheat the oven at 275C.
Place the bread and olives on a baking sheet and cook until crisp, for about 1 hour for the bread and up to 3 hours for the olives.
Add both of the ingredients in a blender and pulse until you reach the desired texture. It should resemble black soil.
Spread over the dip and top with your choice of veggies.
Suggestions : broccoli flowers, celery with leaves, carrots, red, orange and yellow peppers, mint leave, sprigs of dill and basil, endive leaves, or any other veggies you have in your fridge.
Happy Earth Day!!!
