Toast Art - The Full Guide​



Creating a beautiful art with food was always a passion of mine, My mother use to say 'we first eat with our eyes' and the Chinese along with the Indians and other ancient traditions were talking about eating with all of our senses for centuries - That is described as eating meditation.

For me, cooking and making food is a part of the meditation, and as the Japanese make tea as a ceremonial experience -cooking for me is an essential process of having a piece of mind in the middle of a hard day or unwinding at the end of one.



Scrolling down on instagram and my favourite food blogs I saw all the unicorns, mermaids and rainbow toasts.. and then it hit me!

Why not drawing on my toast with superfoods?!

why wont I get a brush and start improvising, or even better - get some stencils made!


It is all up to your imagination, and if you have kids it is an amazing educational activity you can do with them..

So get your drawing on - lets start making magic in the kitchen!



So get your Favourite colourful superfoods powders from the article - "COLOURING YOUR FOOD WITH SUPERFOODS" and lets begin!




First thing first

You will need to get some jars, or small bowls, its like a painter has his color palette, that is going to be your colours palette.

I chose to use jars because they are easy to store if you want to make it on a daily basis.

The amount of jars or small bowls are really up to you and how many colours you would like to use.


You can prepare a brush, you can get a small one for finer lines or big one for colouring. If you are only after making some nice colours on the toast a normal spread knife will do.


You can go to the nearest art shop and find some interesting stencils, But you can defiantly just draw!



Choose your toppings

Be creative, for example - granola/ muesli can be sand of an ocean, or using cookie cutters for cutting fruits as stars in a galaxy, using chia or bukinis as small galaxy stars, or using yogurt moulds as making ocean animals or mermaids.

Prepare your toppings aside so you will be ready to top it up when the drawing is ready.




Let's Begin! /INSTRUCTIONS

Using your superfood colours, place 3-4 heaped tbsp yogurt (can be also a vegan yogurt) with 1/2-1 tsp powder (depends of how dark or strong you want your colours to be).

Mix it but not too well to create some shades.


You can toast the bread or have it fresh if you like,

Then draw on the toast, top it up and enjoy.
