Veg Lollipop | How to Make Vegetable Lollipop
Veg lollipop recipe with step by step photos and instructions.
Another great appetizer that is quick and easy. These tiny balls are loaded with veggies. This makes a great party appetizer.
My veg lollipops are vegan and I have not added any cheese to this. Still, it tastes so yummy. I couldn’t resist my taste buds and ended up with 10 – 12 of them. Flavourful and delicious melt in mouth snacks is perfect for any occasion or get together. This is a guilt-free snack I must say.
You can serve them as veg balls or veg bites or as a lollipop. Serve them with any dip. It will be just a perfect snack for tea time or evening snacks.
This is quick and easy and takes no more than 30 minutes or even less than that. Again since this is loaded with lots of veggies in some portions, this is healthy finger food for kids and toddlers.
Here in this recipe, I have added potatoes, green peas, bell peppers, cauliflower, corn kernels. You can also add carrots, cabbage, zucchini, and whatever you feel like adding to it.
And yes if you want it cheesy, you can add some grated mozzarella or any processed cheese. If you are vegan add vegan cheese. But trust me that is a secondary option.
This is kids friendly and you can adjust chilli factor when making for kids and toddlers. I love it spicy and loved it with hot sauce and green spicy coriander chutney both. Even you can give it a try with schezwan sauce. Perfect combination.
