• ¼ cup store-bought hummus
  • 4 pitas
  • Cucumber slices
  • Cherry tomato halves
  • Gherkin
  • Celery sticks
  • Bell pepper pieces


1. Evenly spread each of 4 pocketless pitas with hummus.

2. Form a cat face, with cucumber slices for eyes and cherry tomato halves for eyeballs; a gherkin for the nose; thin celery sticks for the whiskers; and bell pepper pieces for the mouth and ears. Or create faces with other favorite veggies. (Try celery chunks for ears, squeeze-bottle mustard for eyebrows, zucchini for eyes, peas for eyeballs, and basil leaves for hair.)

3. Wrap in waxed paper and pack in a lunch box.
