2D Broccoli Christmas Tree 西兰花圣诞树

除了之前的3D水果圣诞树,咱们还可以做个2D的圣诞树哦。这次用了健身圣品——西兰花君,感觉做好的圣诞树萌萌的,都不会想到水煮西兰花这种东西上恩。。。

其实如果用一些蛋黄酱呀,奶油酱呀或者那种白色的沙拉酱还可以营造更多节日气氛,不过今天这份还是以健康为主,接下来一起看看原料吧~~

原料

西兰花一颗,圣女果适量,柠檬一个。

Broccoli 1 bunch, Cherry Tomatoes 1 box, Lemon for decoration (the star. I recommend to use starfruit but I wasn't able to buy one).

这里圣女果也可以用别的水果代替,柠檬的话主要是为了切五角星,有杨桃的可以用杨桃,有菠萝的可以用菠萝,只是给大家多介绍两种做五角星的方式。

 

做法
1

1. 水煮西兰花。
西兰花掰成小块,洗净,注意西兰花的梗留着不要丢掉。锅中烧开水,倒入盐,加入西兰花一起煮,至西兰花煮熟。

1. Boil the broccoli.

Separate the broccoli into small pieces and wash them. Keep the stem. Boil some water along with salt, and boil the broccoli chunks in the pot.

22. 准备工作。
西兰花捞出之后过一下凉水(颜色更好看一些,可以省去),把西兰花的梗切成上尖下窄的形状,然后煮熟的西兰花小块从中间切开。

2. Prep work.

After you boil the broccoli, shock them in cold water (to make the color look nicer). Now use the stem to cut out a trunk shape. Cut the broccoli into smaller pieces as you need.

33. 摆树的造型。
将西兰花一层一层码起来,注意把梗藏在上一层后面。最后用小的西兰花块挡住一些空隙。

3. Shape the tree.

Use the small pieces of Broccoli as tree leaves and tree branches. Don't leave blank places.

44. 点缀圣诞树。
将圣女果放到圣诞树上作为点缀,还可以取一些柠檬皮切成小条也点缀在树上。

4. Decorate the tree.

Decorate on your cherry tomatoes and lemon peels on the "tree".
55. 切五角星。
与3D圣诞树不同,这个的五角星需要一定的厚度,不然放在盘子上比例有点失衡,可以用柠檬,菠萝,杨桃等等。

5. Cut our your star.

It's important to get some thickness on the plate for a better look. You can use any yellow fruit: Lemon, pineapple, starfruit etc.

Tips

1. 西兰花不要煮太过火,不然就软趴趴水叽叽的,影响卖相。熟了立刻捞出来,过凉水有助于保持绿色。

2. 更讲究点儿可以把小西兰花的梗削薄一点,这样贴合在树干上更好看。

3. 还是那句话,所有水果都不是必需的,选择你身边触手可及的就行,如果想要一些白色,可以用白色沙拉酱或者蛋黄酱等作为点缀(附图2012年旧图)。

1. Don't over boil broccoli, and give it a cold shock after you boil it, it makes the best looking tree.

2. You can divide the broccoli into smaller pieces after you boil them for a better looking result.

3. You can definitely choose your own fruit and sauce. Like in 2012, we used some ranch as decoration too.
