#SRC ~ Carrot Flowers
Welcome to the January 2016 Group D reveal day for Secret Recipe Club! I hope you will take a moment to visit the Secret Recipe Club if you've never heard of it before - it is a wonderful group of food bloggers who are given a secret assignment of another member's blog each month and our goal is to pick ANYTHING from their blog to make and post about on our designated reveal day.
For this month's assignment, I received Shirley's blog Enriching Your Kid. I took my time browsing through the numerous tasty dishes she's shared over the years before deciding I had to share the adorable carrot flowers she posted about in 2012. I also saved her oatmeal pancakes to make soon! Shirley has a ton of amazing Indian dishes on her blog as well that I was itching to make - but did not find the time to get out to our International Farmers Market to hunt down a few of the key ingredients I would have needed.
I have a picky 2 1/2 year old and since Shirley's blog is all about "Enriching Your Kid" I thought this simple and fun recipe was the perfect highlight from her blog. Anyway I can find to help my kids be more interested in healthy choices makes me happy!
Carrot Flowers from Enriching Your Kid
- Peel carrot, Chop in half and use the thicker top half. Slice 5 wedges length wise down the carrot - use a fork to help scrape out the wedge if needed.
- Slice into thin round pieces and serve as a healthy snack, side dish, in your child's lunchbox, etc.!
- Serve with ranch dip, hummus, etc. if desired.
Carrot flowers are a great way to spruce up any lunch! They'd be super cute in chicken noodle soup, pot roast, or curry. Great pickReplyDelete
They would definitely be perfect in any of those applications - Lindsey does love chicken noodle soup. :)Delete
