Today I’m sharing a fun food tutorial for cheese and carrot coins. This is an update of one of my very earliest blog posts with new (hopefully better!) photos and a fun little video tutorial too. These carrot coins are very quick and easy to make, and are great as a fun snack, or to pop in a lunch box too.
All you need to make them is the following;
- 1 large carrot, washed.
- small block of cheddar cheese
- vegetable peeler
- small sharp knife
- mini bento cutters
Peel the carrot, then cut into thick slices or rounds. Cut slices of cheddar cheese to a similar thickness to the carrot rounds. From each carrot round, cut a shape using a mini cutter.
From a slice of cheese, cut a shape using the same cutter. Slide the cheese shape into the carrot round.
Repeat until you have as many ‘coins’ as you need. Mix them up with different cutter shapes, or you could hunt out some rainbow carrots to make them even prettier!
You could cook the carrot before you use it, but we preferred them raw. You could also apply this technique to other vegetables – we like to put carrot shapes into cucumber rounds too.
As I mentioned above, I’ve also made a fun little video tutorial to show you how I make these. If you enjoy it, do subscribe my YouTube channel, I hope to have lots more videos for you over the coming weeks and months.
