There seem to be so many occasions when we need to bring a plate along to share with friends and relatives. Having a few exciting but simple ideas up your sleeve takes a bit of pressure off, especially if they are quick, healthy and fun too!
Here are some cute little hedgehogs that would be at home at a party for any age group. Use any dip you’d like as long as it’s fairly thick (if you have a runnier dip you can always firm it up by draining through cheesecloth [eg. a Chux] for an hour or so).
- dip (I used homemade hummus)
- capsicum (other firm veges would work like kumara, cucumber, radish)
- olive (for the faces)
Step 1 Step 1 Form the dip into simple ‘body’ shapes.
Step 2 Cut celery into thin ‘spikes’ and press into one of the hedgehogs.
Step 3 Slice carrot thinly and add to the second hedgehog.
Step 4 Add capsicum spikes to the third hedgehog.
Step 5 I used chopped olives to make eyes and noses.
Step 6 Then sliced celery to make little legs.
Step 7 And finished with some chopped carrot and celery for the ground.
