Vegetarian Recipes for Kids: Crabbiless Guacamole Rolls
Vegetarian recipes for kids are hard to find. There are many recipes out there for adults but like other “adult food,” they just sit on your plate and wait for you to eat them. Crabbiless Guacamole Rolls make mealtime not only fun for the kiddos to eat but also fun to make too. With a few simple ingredients commonly found in guacamole you can make these adorable little rolls that look like crabs in minutes and see smiles light up your kids faces!
Simple Ingredients for Crabbiless Guacamole Rolls and Other Vegetarian Recipes for Kids
The ingredient list for these cute rolls is short. I use Napa cabbage, which looks a lot like romaine lettuce, but if you’ve never used it before, it has a light cabbage flavor. Supple leaves, yet a crisp texture, give this leaf an edge in these Crabbiless Guacamole Rolls. Wrapped inside are layers of tomatoes and avocado slices, the two main ingredients in my guacamole recipe. Creamy and tart, they taste delicious curled up in a cabbage leaf. If you’d like a dressing, you could pair this with just a sprinkling of lime juice or lemon juice or even your favorite salad dressing. Napa cabbage works great in many vegetarian recipes for kids that take romaine lettuce.
- 1 head Napa cabbage
- 1 pint grape tomatoes
- 1 avocado, peeled and sliced thin
- 1 lemon, juiced
- Wash the cabbage and try it gently with paper towels.
- With a sharp knife, cut the center vein out of the cabbage, about halfway up the leaf. Discard.
- Slice a few of the grape tomatoes, leaving two whole for each cabbage leaf. Place on the cabbage leaf.
- Layer the avocado.
- Roll the cabbage, from the white ends to the leafy green part. Secure with two toothpicks, inserted so they angle from the outside in.
- Place a grape tomato on the end of each toothpick, forming the eyes.
- Serve your Crabbiless Guacamole Rolls with lemon juice or dressing.
Not a Cabbage Fan? Versatility in Vegetarian Recipes for Kids because Crabbiless Guacamole Rolls have Options
Not everyone likes cabbage, even the mild Napa cabbage. If you or your kiddos don’t enjoy the cruciferous vegetable, try using Romaine lettuce!
