‘Tis the season for eating. If that’s not on a holiday sign somewhere, it should be. Because this is the season for good, rich, indulgent food. Sometimes, though, you just need a break from the heaviness of it all. Some days call for something different.
I’ve been meaning to introduce a meatless meal day throughout the week and there’s no better time than now. Especially since I found MorningStar Farms Veggie Bowls at Walmart. So easy to make in delicious flavor combinations, they’re a simple way to substitute veggies for meat in a meal while helping me and my family try to keep a healthier lifestyle.
Available in 5 varieties in the Walmart freezer section, I picked up both the MorningStar Farms Veggie Bowls in Chik’n Pot Pie as well as the Italian Sausage Bake. The Chik’n Strips used are 100% vegan chik’n strips that are lightly seasoned with 23g of protein at 150 calories. With so many flavor combinations, it’s my way to veg!
Since we’re getting excited for vegetables, I wanted to make some fun Vegetable Cork Coasters. And since we were doing coasters, I also wanted to make matching cork trivets for our hot veggie bowls.
Do you know someone who loves their veggies? These DIY Vegetable Cork Coasters are easy to put together and also make a great gift idea! Especially when the kids make them.
Once made, it’s time to eat your MorningStar Farms Veggie Bowl with your new set of Vegetable Cork Coasters!
- cork tiles, cut into single and with 4 attached
- Mod Podge
- vegetable image printable sheets in color or black & white
- cup or something circular to fit for tracing
First, you’ll need to download and print on heavy cardstock a sheet of our veggie images on. Cut the veggie images out in a circle to fit your cork coasters. I found the bottom of a plastic cup was the perfect size. Trace an outline around and cut inside the lines.
Then, prepare your corks coasters. I found these sheets of cork tiles and just cut out what we needed. Single corks for cups and we left 4 corks attached for the bowl trivets.
Brush on a generous layer of Mod Podge, then affix your cut out veggie images.
Apply another, even layer of Mod Podge to the coaster. Let dry. Repeat. You’ll want at least 2-3 layers of Mod Podge so your coasters are protected.
And there you have it, some truly darling Vegetable Cork Coasters that the kids can make! These would make a wonderful gift, but I completely understand if you want to keep them for yourself. Be sure to check out more inspiring veggie ideas from MorningStar Farms!
