For the mini veg patches (serves 2)

1. Thoroughly wash and dry two new small plant pots or bowls.

2. Fill each plant pot/bowl with half a tub of hummus, top with crushed digestives or charcoal cheese biscuits to look like soil and gently press four baby carrots and four small purple sprouting broccoli or Tenderstem broccoli to look like they are growing and ready to harvest.
