Fun Avocado Turtle

Avocado Turtle

Love, love, love avocadoes and it’s the season for them this time of year in NZ.

Avocadoes make a great breakfast, lunch or snack food. I have made a very simple, fun food plate that the mini chefs can help you make.

I served on toast but it would be delicious on mushrooms or on its own.

Recipe

– Wholegrain toast

– ½ avocado

– 2 cherry tomatoes

– I used cottage cheese for eyes

– Baby spinach leaves

Method

1. Place half the avocado on top of the toast.

2. Add a cherry tomato for the head.

3. Then slice another cherry tomato into 4 pieces to make the legs.
