  • 1 large carrot, washed.
  • small block of cheddar cheese


  • 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. 


Equipment: Vegetable peeler, small sharp knife and mini bento cutters. 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.
