These fun canoes would be a great weekend activity at the lake!
bag (16 oz) frozen sliced carrots, cooked
container (8 oz) plain hummus
teaspoon ground cumin
(6-inch) mini seedless cucumbers
large red bell peppers
cup sliced fresh carrots
In food processor or blender, place cooked carrots. Cover; puree until smooth. Add hummus and cumin; process until well blended. Refrigerate 1 hour to blend flavors.
Cut V-shape out of top of each mini cucumber; scoop out center. Spoon about 3 tablespoons carrot hummus into each canoe. Cut oars out of bell peppers. Place 2 carrot slices and 2 bell pepper oars onto hummus. Serve canoe on shredded lettuce.
Let the kids add their own touch to the canoe by choosing their favorite vegetables to ride in the canoe.
Cut fish shapes out of bell peppers to use as dippers.
