Carrot Eggs

It’s easy to make peeled eggs look like little carrots – want to know more?

What you need:

  • 6-12 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
  • Red and yellow food coloring
  • ½ bunch of curly parsley

How to Do it:

After boiling the eggs, crack the shell and put them in a bowl of cold water for a few minutes.  20160311-IMG_5309

Peel them under cold running water and the shell and membrane should come off easily.  Dry them well on paper towels.

In a bowl of water, add 20 drops of yellow food color and 10 red.  Mix well.  Add the dry, peeled eggs to the water and let sit for about 5 minutes, until the color is bright orange.


Allow the eggs to dry.


Using a skewer, put a hole in the fat end of the egg.


Push a small bunch of parsley into the hole, like carrot leaves.


Arrange on plate and serve as an appetizer.
