Carrot and Hummus Dip
What's your Take?

Here's a treat hungry students are sure to dig: baby carrots planted in tasty dip.

What you'll need

  • Hummus
  • Baby carrots
  • Curly parsley

How to make it

  1. For each patch, spoon about 3 tablespoons of hummus into a small plastic cup (ours were 3-ounce size).

  2. Shortly before you're ready to deliver the snack to the classroom, gather four baby carrots for each cup and use a toothpick to poke a hole in the top of each one. Insert a sprig of parsley into each hole.

  3. Then plant the carrots in the hummus. For a special presentation, you can place the cups in mini terra-cotta pots that the kids can take home and use to start veggie seedlings of their own.
