Cute lunches: snowman snow globe

Keeping my snow globe theme, here’s a cute snowman to brighten up your day.

cute lunches: snowman snow globe

What you need:
2 tortilla wraps (I used wholemeal ones)
blue food colouring
pastry brush
tortilla filling of your choice (I used avocado and ricotta)
a piece of mozarella (or other cheese such as ricotta or cream cheese)
a piece of cucumber
1 slice of red pepper (or tomato)
1 slice of red apple (or red pepper or tomato)

Directions:

Using a small bowl as a template, cut out two circles from the tortilla wraps (mine were about 12cm in diameter). From the scraps, cut out one snow globe base and the trunk of the Christmas tree.

Mix 1 or 2 drops of blue food colouring with 2 tbsp water. Using a pastry brush, lightly paint one tortilla circle (don’t let it get too wet) and leave to dry.

Put your other circle on your serving plate and top with your filling. Place the base cut from the remaining pieces of tortilla at the bottom of your plate.

Cut out three small circles from your mozzarella, making each a little bit smaller than the last. Cut a larger piece of mozarella for the snow at the bottom of the globe. (If using a softer cheese, spread it at the bottom of the globe.)

Once your coloured tortilla circle is dry, place it on top of your filling and place the mozarella pieces on top.

Cut a piece of cucumber for the snowman’s hat and finely dice some more cucumber for his eyes and buttons.

Cut a nose and hat pompom from the red pepper. Cut two very thin strips from the apple to make the scarf.

Finally, break off small pieces of mozzarella for the falling snow and scatter them around your tree. (If using a softer cheese, drop tiny dollops around for the snow.)
