Hummus Heads

Serves 2


2 romaine lettuce leaves, cut into very thin strips

¼ cup drained bottled roasted red pepper strips

8 cherry tomatoes, halved

4 pitted black olives, sliced

1 Kirby cucumber, sliced

2 whole-wheat English muffins, split in half and toasted

½ cup hummus

Cooking Instructions

Place the lettuce, red pepper strips, tomatoes, olives and cucumber slices in piles on a plate. Spread the English muffins with the hummus, then use the vegetables to make funny faces on them: lettuce or pepper strips can be hair; tomatoes or olives can be eyes; cucumber slices can be ears - use your imagination, adding any vegetables you like, and have fun!

Turkey and Rice "Mice"

Serves 8


2 slices whole-wheat bread

1 pound ground skinless turkey breast

1 cup cooked brown rice

1 small onion, grated

¼ cup ketchup

¼ teaspoon salt

½ cup unsweetened apple juice

4 sliced pitted black olives

Carrot slices and strips

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Place the bread in a food processor and pulse to make the fine crumbs. Transfer the crumbs to a large bowl and add the turkey, rice, onion, ketchup and salt. Mix with your hands or a spin until well blended. Form the mixture into 8 small oval loaves and place the loaves in a 9 X 12-inch pan. Pour the apple juice into the pan. Bake until the mice are cooked through, about 45 minutes.

3. Remove the mice from the pan with a spatula. Press 2 olive slices into each for eyes and make ears and tail with carrot slices and strips.
