A few years ago I did a post on how to make edible spoons and bowls from dough. I thought it was a great idea, but just not with my method and recipe. I searched online to see if anyone else had done something similar and stumbled across a small handful of ideas, but then found this little gem… Roy, the inventor of the Edible Spoon Making Kit has indeed thought of a really simple and clever way to make edible spoons. Roy kindly sent me a kit to try (and will be giving one lucky reader a free kit!). Since receiving the kit, I’ve made well over 100 spoons (maybe 200 by now) and have enjoyed sitting around a spread of dips and toppings munching away on the spoons. To make the spoons, simply roll flat a piece of bread, punch out the spoon shape, press the cutout into the spoon and bake (more detailed instructions supplied with the kit).
While I was making a batch of spoons and some home made pasta, a time saving idea popped into my head. Watch the video below to see how I used a pasta machine to make dozens of spoons in a few minutes!
Topping suggestions: Cob-style guacamole: Avocado, corn kernels, red pepper, purple cabbage, extra virgin olive oil, salt and lemon Grilled Thai Mushroom Salsa. Place a small leafy green on the spoon first to prevent the spoon going soggy if not eating immediately.
Roy, from the Edible Spoon Company is giving one lucky SPW reader the chance to win a spoon making kit! To enter, just leave a comment here with what toppings you would love to put on the spoons (the winner will be randomly chosen).
