Carrot Flower Garnishment for Deviled Eggs with Herb Leaves

This idea has been on my mind for a while folks. These Carrot Flowers for Deviled Eggs are super simple, but make such a big impression! The key to being able to roll the flowers is having the carrot at room temperature (thanks Ma:@), and cutting ~thin~ slices with your peeler. And my planters of fresh basil and rosemary provided the little leaves (parsley would be great too). Just use your favorite deviled egg recipe and add the little flower embellishment, wa-la, very special indeed.

What occasion would they be good for?
Easter, Mother's Day, Graduation, Baby Showers, Weddings, Birthdays, Tuesday...
You get the idea:@)

What I did:
  1. Let carrot come to room temperature and peel it.
  2. Using a standard peeler, lightly run it the length of the carrot to get long slices.
  3. Gently roll the carrot until desired size of flower.
  4. I added a small slice to the center of each flower, let it stick up a little higher.
  5. Push into filling of egg.
  6. Add small leaf to flower, any edible herb works.
Make something just for fun and have a happy day:@)

  1. I am in love with this idea! Of course I only have baby carrots in the crisper, but I will be looking at the grocery store for the longest carrots possible!

  2. Great idea, and letting it get to room temp is brilliant!!!
