Carrot Patches Recipe

Here's a treat hungry students are sure to dig: baby carrots planted in tasty dip.


  • Hummus
  • Baby carrots
  • Curly parsley


For each patch, spoon about 3 tablespoons of hummus into a small plastic cup (ours were 3-ounce size).

Shortly before you're ready to deliver the snack to the classroom, gather four baby carrots for each cup and use a toothpick to poke a hole in the top of each one. Insert a sprig of parsley into each hole.

Then plant the carrots in the hummus. For a special presentation, you can place the cups in mini terra-cotta pots that the kids can take home and use to start veggie seedlings of their own.
