Step 1: 1.Pick the right vegetables. Many veggies are suitable, including carrots, potatoes, squash, rutabagas, etc. You could also use firm tofu and add a food color to the water, which the tofu will soak up. You can do this with the veggies, too. Be
Step 3: 2. Prepare your veggies. Boil or steam the vegetables so that they’re soft but not mushy. Soak them for a couple minutes in salt water. This will make them a little firmer by drawing out some of the moisture
Step 4: 3.Cut the vegetables into cube shapes. As with real lego pieces, you’ll need to decide what bricks you’d like to make: a single stud square brick, the four stud square, or the six stud rectangle. ("stud" refers to the little bumps on top of real lego bricks).
Step 5: 4. Poke a straw all the way through the vegetable. This will create a round hole and will push out the inside of the vegetable brick. Be sure to match holes with the lego stud arrangement you’re creating.
Step 6: 5.Using a toothpick, push the stud from the bottom of the vegetable brick until it sticks out of the top. This ensures that it looks like a lego brick, complete with studs!
Step 7: 6. Check that the studs are evenly positioned across the top by looking at the brick sideways. If it’s not, carefully press a stud back in, or poke one farther out.
Step 8: 7.Serve with a smile on a colorful plate. Your kids will be delighted!
