Prep Time: 35 min.

Try these weave crudités if you want a fun canapé to add to your dinner party rotation. They’re healthy, delicious and bound to impress. You can use any base you like - whipped feta, avocado, pesto, garlic cream cheese or aioli would be delicious, too. I hope you enjoy them. 

What you need


1. Wash and then peel the carrots using the vegetable peeler.

2. Now make long strips of carrot, leaving you with several equally long, equally wide pieces. You may need to trim them slightly.

3. Repeat for the cucumber. Ensure the cucumber strips are about the same length as the carrot.

4. Lay the cucumber peels vertically next to each other in a row. I had 11 in total.

5. Now, weave a piece of carrot peel horizontally over and under the rows. Move this piece to the top.

6. Repeat with a new piece, but go over where you went under previously, and under where you went over, etc.

7. Continue this way until all the intersecting pieces are in place.

8. You may need to push the pieces together to tighten the weaves slightly.

9. Place the octagon cutter on the pattern to press out the carrot and cucumber-weaved shapes.

10. Top the crackers with hummus and then the octagons (I used a wide knife to lift them).

11. Serve.
