A rice cake with a fun face, assembled from grapes, celery, nuts and apple

Ingredients

  • 4 rice cakes
  • 100g reduced-fat soft cheese
  • 1 small red apple, quartered and cored
  • 1 small celery stick, sliced into 4 pieces
  • 8 hazelnuts
  • 4 seedless red grapes, halved

Method

  1. Spread each rice cake with a quarter of the soft cheese.

  2. Next, cut each apple quarter into 3 slices, and place on the rice cakes – 2 pieces to represent eyebrows, and 1 to represent the mouth.

  3. Position the celery on each rice cake for the noses, with a hazelnut placed on each side for the nostrils. Finally, place the halved grapes under the eyebrows to look like eyes.

    Information:

    Use sultanas or raisins instead of hazelnuts for the nostrils, and a halved dried apricot instead of grapes for the eyes.
