7 So Easy Fruit-and-Veggie Valentine IdeasBrooke McLay
Toss the box of chocolates! This year, we’re making it easy to show people you truly care with a bowl of fruit-and-veggie valentines that are perfect for dipping, packing in lunchboxes, and cooking into a pot of delicious Love Soup. Wanna get a handful of healthy valentines in your kitchen, stat? Here’s how to turn seven fruits and veggies into totally adorable treats. Eat your heart out, babe!
THE METHOD: For six of these seven veggie valentines, you’ll simply follow the photos above. Cut a “V” shape in the top, then use a vegetable peeler to gently create a curve around the top of the veggie, and use the peeler to create a large “V” at the bottom of your heart. Carefully slice, and you’ll have a whole batch of hearts! Make a whole batch in seconds with carrots…
Cucumbers work, as well. Try making them with English cucumbers and mini cucumbers (or pickles!) for fun veggie-dip dippers!
Mini potatoes can be turned into hearts using the same method. Look for tiny, round potatoes for best results…
Voila! Perfect for dipping in yogurt, or packing a little love in your kiddos lunchbox!
