Simba's Hummus Platter
Prep Time 10 minutes

"Hakuna Matata!" This Simba-inspired snack is as healthy as it is adorable. Picky pre-schoolers will love eating their veggies when they're paired with tasty hummus, and resemble their favorite lion, Simba.


What you'll need

  • 1/4 cup hummus, store-bought or from your favorite recipe
  • Wax paper
  • 1/2 red pepper, ribs and seeds removed
  • 1 whole-wheat tortilla
  • 1 flour tortilla
  • 1 red radish
  • 1 pitted black olive

How to make it

  1. Step 1

    Use a 3" round cookie cutter to cut circles from the flour tortilla and the whole wheat tortilla.

  2. Step 2

    Cut a crescent shape from the flour tortilla, for Simba's mouth. Trim the sides of the whole-wheat tortilla to make the bridge of Simba's nose. Cut ears from the scraps of the whole-wheat tortilla.

  3. Step 3

    Put a scoop of hummus in the center of a small plate and add the tortilla nose and mouth.

  4. Step 4

    Cut a radish in half. Use two thin slices for the eyes, and trim the other half to look like a red nose. Cut the red pepper into curvy strips, and place them around the hummus face, as a mane. Add tortilla ears. Finish with sliced olives as pupils, and strips of olive as eyebrows.
