Heart Shaped Carrots Ribolitta

My husband totally teased me about these carrots.  He thought it was hilarious that I took the time to carve carrots into shapes and that my kids and I liked them so much.  If something happens to me, promise me you will check in on my husband and make sure my kids are eating veggies.  Because I know there are other crazy moms like me who not only love doing silly things like this for holidays, but who are always thinking of ways to get those veggies in.  So… heart shaped carrots it is!  My kids ate them raw, then I used them in ribolitta soup that night.  Yeah, they were kind of a pain, but no that big of a pain.  Do you know what I mean?  It took way way less time than making cookies, and my kids thought they were a special Valentine’s treat… so score, I say!  I do have to point out that I brought some soup over to my mom and dad that night, and my dad ate his whole bowl without noticing there were heart shaped carrots in it. So maybe the boys in my family are not appreciative, but I am choosing to post these darling little Valentine’s carrots based on the appreciation of the women and my kids!

PS Here are a few other recipes that you could use these carrots in for Valentine’s Day:

Alpine Potato Soup
Broccoli, Chicken and Swiss Soup
Mama Filoso’s Chicken Rice Soup
Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup
Chicken Lo Mein
Pasta Primavera with Shrimp
Green Curry Chicken

Peel carrots.  Using a paring knife, cut a wedge out of the top the length of the carrot.  Remove the wedge.  Use a vegetable peeler to shave off the sharp edges created when the wedge was removed.  Then shave each side of the cylindrical bottom until they meet in a point.  You should now have a long heart shaped carrot.  Slice it and repeat the steps on the rest of your carrots.  Enjoy!

    What a darling idea! And, by the way, I made Ribolitta Soup for the first time last week and I thought it was delicious! and super duper healthy too! For lunch today I had leftover Alpine Potato Soup and I was loving every last bite. I will have to try these cute heart carrots in one of the other soup ideas. So fun!

    I love this idea, I love hearts especially at Valentines. I made carrot hearts and used them in a stir fry! My family loved them. Thank you for the fun idea!
