Garnishing Ideas

Add a little flair to your meals with a little garnish

Here are some quick ideas:
  • Garnish soup with toppings such as chopped avocado, sliced almonds or add a swirl of cream or sour cream to the top before serving.
  • Sprinkle baked goods with chopped nuts or streusel topping before baking. 
  • Add powdered sugar to baked goods after they come out of the oven. You can do this by sprinkling sugar with your fingers or using a sugar shaker.
  • Add chopped fresh herbs to soup or salads
  • Add a sliced lemon or lime to a drink.
  • Cut fruit or vegetables into flowers. You can get really fancy by learning how to cut flowers out of radishes, carrots and tomatoes.
  • Add a fruit kabob to a smoothie or milkshake by adding sliced fruit to a skewer or long toothpick.
  • Some fruit shells can be used as a bowl. Scrap or cut the fruit out and use as a serving bowl. Watermelon is often used as a serving bowl but don't forget even oranges can be mini sized serving dishes. Try coconuts, pineapples, lemons or limes.
  • Serve dips or condiments in hollowed out colored peppers.
  • Add fresh sliced fruit. Not only does fruit add a little more nutrition, they are colorful and they can easily be added on the side of your plate or decorated in a flower shape or whatever you choose
  • Add chocolate curls to cakes, cream pies or milkshakes. These are easily formed by using a grater on a candy bar.
