How to Make Cauliflower Sheep

Have you ever seen a cauliflower on your plate at dinnertime? Almost everyone has. But have you ever seen a cauliflower sheep on your plate? This recipe will tell you how to make a cute little cauliflower sheep out of every-day ingredients. Have fun!

Ingredients

  • Cauliflower, as many as you want. The cauliflowers are going to be the body, so however many sheep you want, each one has to have a cauliflower.
  • Black Olives. These will be for the heads, and also for the legs.
  • Black eyed peas. These will be for the eyes, so however many sheep you want, multiply by 2 and that will be how many black eyed peas you will need.
  • Raisins. These are optional, as shown in the video. These can be used as a leg substitution, if you cannot figure out how to do the olives as the legs.
