I made this black bean rice elephant for lunch for myself. I am not thrilled with the lack of color contrast but it was a tasty and fulfilling meal.
Top: Elephant – hot cooked Nishiki rice pressed into a cookie cutter with plastic wrap, black beans (I used my food processor to puree black beans with some lemon juice), cooked broccoli
Bottom Left: Elephant – apple cut with a cookie cutter dipped in water with lemon juice to prevent browning, mini chocolate chip, raspberries
Bottom Right: Pistachios
