Vegie noughts & crosses
2 slices brown rice or
buckwheat bread 1 slice sourdough bread 2 tsp Hummus the hero (top, left) 2 tsp Cucumber and yoghurt
dip (right) 1 celery stalk 4 thin slices carrot
1 Cut five 4cm (1½ inch) squares from the brown rice bread and four 4cm (1½ inch) squares from the sourdough and set aside. Spread the sourdough squares with hummus and the brown rice bread squares with yoghurt dip.
2 On a large platter or tray, arrange the bread squares to form a checkerboard pattern with the brown rice bread in the corners and centre. Cut 10 5cm (2-inch) long thin pieces from the celery stalk to make crosses and place on the brown rice squares, then place the carrot slices on the sourdough squares to make noughts.
Use a slice of Seeded loaf (left) in place of the sourdough bread to boost the nutritional intake and cater for children who can’t eat gluten.
