This great idea comes from the PBS website, but I’ve made some slight variations to create an edible Hanukkah Menorah. It’s a perfect addition to the dinner table. You can make it with raw vegetables or steam them, like I have below.
To make this, you need:
- 9 thin green grape slices
- 9 asparagus spears
- Green beans
- Sliced carrots
- Slice of cheese cut into a Star of David shape
Start by placing the grape slices along the plate, putting the middle one slightly higher than the rest. Next, rest the asparagus spears, with the tips over the grape slices, to make the grapes look like flames. Fashion the bottom of the menorah with the carrots slices and beans. Finish with the star on the asparagus in the center.
