Ingredients

FOR THE CREATURE

1 green pepper

1 cucumber

2 stuffed olives

Cress or dill

TO SERVE

200g pot Asda 30% Less Fat Houmous

100g fat-free Greek-style yogurt

1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced

1 yellow pepper, deseeded and sliced

Method

1
Slice off the top of the pepper and deseed. Cut a 1cm strip of pepper and shape into ‘hands’. Cut a mouth into the pepper with a small, sharp knife. Peel a slice from the cucumber for a tongue, then cut the rest into batons and reserve. Add the tongue to the pepper and finish with olive eyeballs and cress hair.
2
Put the houmous into a bowl and stir in the yogurt. Position the creature and its ‘hands’ on the side of the dish.
