After a fantastic time with his first Kiwi Crate, Travis enjoyed playing doctor again to make… edible bones!
The recipe from his Kiwi Explore magazine was very loose, with no precise measurements. So let your surgeon work with the ingredients to his or her taste.
First, you’ll need a tube of breadstick dough. This can be hard to find pre-made and vegan, so I purchased a roll of pizza dough. If you have breadstick dough, check the heating and baking instructions on the package.
For our dough, we first rolled into “bones” (the same way that you roll clay or playdough into snakes). Travis loved deciding what was a leg bone, an arm bone etc. Squeeze the middle, so the ends are slightly thicker.
Use kitchen shears to snip the ends of each snake, dividing them outward into a bone shape. Travis was so proud to do this step, with a little grown-up help.
Now brush with a little melted butter (we used Earth Balance) and sprinkle with a little vegan Parmesan (we used Go Veggie).
After 12 minutes at 425 degrees F, these bones were ready to eat!
They’re great plain, or we discovered we also liked them dipped in marinara sauce.
