Fun Veggie Heart

Veggie Heart

In the lead up to Valentines I can’t stop thinking about hearts – although I have to admit this fun food, Veggie Heart reminds me of a map of Africa!

This was a great plate to make and share as part of lunch.

Use any colourful veggies you have. I used:

– Radish

– Yellow capsicum (bell pepper)

– Cucumber

– Cherry tomatoes

– Carrot

– Celery

– Beetroot


1. I drew a faint outline of a heart to follow then placed the veggies overlapping around the edge – starting with slices of radish.

Veggie Heart - 1 radish (1 of 1)

2. Then yellow capsicum.

Veggie Heart - 2 yellow capsicum (1 of 1)

3. Slices of cucumber.

Veggie Heart - 3 cucumber (1 of 1)

4. Cherry tomatoes cut in half. I made a point for the bottom that I later removed.

Veggie Heart - 4 tomatoes (1 of 1)

5. Then moved up the other side with carrot.

Veggie Heart - 5 carrot (1 of 1)

6. And slices from a baton of celery.

Veggie Heart - 6 celery (1 of 1)

7. And some steamed beetroot.

Veggie Heart - 7 beetroot (1 of 1)

8. Time to remove the point of tomato from the bottom.

9. A few fresh herbs to decorate and it’s all finished.
