Roasty veges are the go now the weather is getting cooler. I love to cook up a big tray of potatoes, kumara and pumpkin and then add in beetroot, parsnips, Brussels sprouts or other things I have in the fridge.
I made a simple hippo from some roast veg. Easy to do and makes dinner so exciting.
- kumara (or use all pumpkin)
- pumpkin (or use all kumara)
- broccoli, peas, green beans (use any green veg you have on hand)
Step 1 Put cut pieces of potato together to make a rough body shape (mine would be different every time dependent upon the potato pieces!).
Step 2 Add some pumpkin legs.
Step 3 Make some jaws from kumara. I also added a small piece to rest the eye on later.
Step 4 I added a pumpkin ear.
Step 5 Then used the inside of the potato and a bit of darkened skin to make the eye and pupil.
Step 6 I scooped out a little of the inside of a potato for the teeth.
Step 7 And gave her a tail.
Step 8 A few greens for the ground and she’s all finished!
