Nothing says Mother’s Day like flowers. And ones you can eat, too – bonus!
I’ve created a fun plate that is simple so the mini-chefs can get involved, or even make themselves with a little supervision.
- small tomatoes (or cherry)
- celery (or spring onions)
- baby spinach (or lettuce – you can use scissors to cut to size and shape!)
- I used a little cucumber (optional)
Step 1 Slice the tomatoes in half. Cut two triangles out of one end to leave a ‘flower shape’ (a sharp knife really helps).
Step 2 Then add as many ‘bulbs’ as you’d like.
Step 3 Cut some celery stalks. Just slice until the width of the celery is in proportion with the size of your tomatoes.
Step 4 Add some leaves using baby spinach.
Step 5 I cut the centre out of 2 large leaves then added some spinach ‘ribbons’ to create a bow.
Step 6 To finish off I added a small slice of cucumber to the underside of the tomato. This could also be done with spinach.
Happy Mother’s Day!
