Christmas Tree Veggie Platter

 This is an unusual year for all of us. No Holiday parties this year. I am sure you all are missing the fun of spending some relaxed time with your family and friends and devour some delicious food.  No cozy get togethers with close friends..... No visits to malls..... Travel discouraged..... Covid has taken away a lot from us but it cannot take away the holiday spirit. This year we will have to make an extra effort to make this Christmas Merry!! 

Well, we will have to live socially distanced for time being but that does not mean we have to give up on yummy food! Sharing with you a Veggie Platter which is always a big hit in all the potlucks I take it to. Today I am decorating it to fit the Christmas theme but you can decorate it whichever way you like all year through. It goes very well with the Cream Cheese Dip and I will be sharing the recipe for that shortly.

We will need- 

1 and 1/2 cup of Cauliflower flowerets,

3 or 4 cups of Broccoli flowerets,

Few slices of yellow and red bell pepper

1 cup cherry tomatoes

10-12 pretzel sticks

  1. Using the above picture as an example, arrange pretzels sticks to make the stalk of Christmas tree.
  2. Then arrange the broccoli flowerets in triangle to form the Christmas tree.
  3. On the top of the tree, decorate a small star using few yellow bell pepper slices.
  4.  Decorate the tree with red bell pepper slices and cherry tomatoes.
  5. Use cauliflower flowerets to cover the base. 
  6. Add more pretzel sticks to cover any empty space.
  7. Our Veggie platter is ready to please everyone!

I am Sonali and Welcome to Sonali's Homefoods! Thank you for visiting my blog. This is my attempt to digitize my culinary experiments and also seek creative satisfaction. I am not a professional chef or a nutritionist. I enjoy cooking and often find it meditative as it takes my mind of many unnecessary issues. I look forward to sharing with you all, recipes that are tried, tested, tasted and appreciated by my family and friends. Some recipes that I learnt from my parents, some from my friends and their moms. Some I got from recipe books and some I got from internet. But I am most excited to share with you some recipes that I have developed myself. I look forward to enjoy this delicious journey with you all!
