Make your veggie garden masterpiece with my daughter Lucia’s favorite “Yummus” recipe.
Learn more about Misha and see his cookbook here.
For the veggies
1 pepper, cut crosswise into thin slices
1 English cucumber, sliced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
long slices of carrot, cut thin with a veggie peeler
black sesame seeds (for eyes)
pea shoot spouts, radish or other sprouts, for making great antennae
For the "Yummus":
1 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, drained
juice of 1 lemon
pat of room temperature butter, per Lucia's instruction
dash olive oil
Grab your cutie and make all kinds of creatures: butterflies and flowers, trucks and cars, wildlife panoramas.
Pop the garbanzos in a food processor with a bit of water. Lucia does not like too much olive oil. She permits a dash. However, she loves butter and came up with this delectable addition on her own.
Lemon will help the processing, and you may need a bit of water. Must be child-tested and approved for finishing touches, like salt.
Thanks for the hot tip! My son is 4 now and I am always looking for cute ways to keep him in the kitchen! He loves cooking. 🙂
I love that, Lissa. Keep up the good work!
My Daughter loves cooking, this will be great, thanks!
From my daughter to yours, Tony! Cheers and I’ll post more in this theme, soon! Cheers, Monika
culinary goddesses! My kids thank you for the ideas. Heheh. Sneaky veggies.
Love this idea!!! Tummy’s is popular at our house!
After watching your livestream with Gish and doing the item challenge, requiring me to make Yummis. Normally I hummis, the taste disagrees with me. As a retired chef ( due to disability) I have tried making it different ways, even breaking down and purchasing premade. YUCK!
During the challenge, I made it following the recipe on your site, but remembered in the video you put a clove of garlic and spoke of a few spices you and your child allowed lol.
While making my scene I following my “chef heart” had to taste, and wow was I blown away. i sit here now typing this enjoying my scene after submitting the picture, with some tasty Yummis.
Thank You very much
