1 GREEN BEAN BITES

Throw some fresh and ten­der green beans in boil­ing wa­ter for a cou­ple of min­utes, un­til they’re cooked but still crisp for tod­dlers, or soft for ba­bies. Plunge them into iced wa­ter and shred into thin slices. Sprin­kle with Parme­san and finely chopped basil.

2 ROASTED SPEARS

Trim the ends from some as­para­gus spears, toss in olive oil, and roast in a 200°C oven for 10-12 min­utes, be­fore leav­ing to cool. They’ll keep in the fridge for 24 hours.

3 CARROT SPI­RALS

Spread a tor­tilla with hum­mus and grate some carrot over the top. Roll it up tightly and cut into thin slices.

4 IN­STANT AV­O­CADO DIP

Peel a ripe av­o­cado and mash it with the fork, dis­card­ing the stone. It tastes great on toast fin­gers!
