Don’t you just love this cute little hummus monster? If your kids are hummus monsters (like mine!), it only makes sense to turn their favorite protein into a monster itself!

I started the hummus monster with a mini naan, because they’re just SO good and my kids will eat anything I put on them. But you could also use an English muffin half, a mini corn tortilla, or even just spread a circle of hummus on the plate if you want to go low-carb or gluten free.

When building your hummus monster, feel free to swap out whatever foods you have on hand. Maybe your monster will have cauliflower hair, raisin eyes, or slivered almond teeth.

Also, don’t be afraid to try some foods you don’t think your child will eat. Food art is a great way to get kids to try new food. Corban shocked me by eating one of the cherry tomato halves, and taking a tiny bit of an olive slice!
