Animal Theme Food Art - Happy Cow Hard Boiled Eggs




Animal Theme Food Art - Happy Cow Hard Boiled Egg. These adorable cows are made of hard boiled eggs, cheese and seaweed (Nori). They're easy to make.




How I made it: 

1. Cook a hard boiled egg. Peeled and halved.



2. Use a round cutter, cut out the shape of the cow's head and add details using 2 types of cheese - light and darker colours. Place them on the hard boiled egg as shown in the picture below.



3. Use a pair of small scissors, cut out the face features/ details and place it on the cheese.




4. Cut out some seaweed to make the patches on the cow's body and it's ready! I served these with Salmon & Pumpkin Fried Rice + Stir Fry Pea Sprout With Shrimps. :)

Gnocchi are plump little lumps of pasta made of potato and it's commonly eaten as a form of pasta dish in Italy. It's usually cooked in salted boiling water and considered cooked when they floats to the surface. The Italian usually eat it with pasta sauce as part of their staple dish. Thanks to Casa Rinaldi for sending over the sampling packs to me. :)

Batman Onigiri 蝙蝠侠饭团




Rice Based Superhero Theme Food Art - Batman Onigiri 蝙蝠侠饭团. Boys will be thrilled and girls would love this cute-looking Batman onigiri/ rice ball. 

Making cute food for kid is really fun and I'm so enjoyed doing it. I always chose a healthier option to make my son's food colourful and to make meal time more exciting.  

Batman Onigiri served with Pan Fried Curry Fish Fillet.

>> Get the easiest Pan Fried Curry Fish Fillet recipe here >> 

Here's some quick notes of how I prepared this cute batman theme lunch:

Batman onigiri is easy to make because there's only black and yellow for the outfit and beige for the skin colour. 


Black: Seaweed aka Nori is the perfect ingredients to make Batman's outfit. I use yaki-nori (dry roasted seaweed) in making character food art. It's easier to handle.




Yellow: I used Cheddar cheese to make the eyes and other details in Batman's outfit.

Skin Colour: I added mashed pumpkin to the rice to get the light yellow colour for the skin. Another alternative is egg yolk.
