My dear friend gave me an early birthday present: handmade pressed vegetable papers. I cannot think of a more perfect gift. The sheer beauty of this vegetable eye candy will will nourish your senses. These breathtaking papers from hiromi papers are made from sliced cucumbers,
and pink radishes.
I was so jazzed by them that I made an edible version, with juicy lemon and orange for added flavor.
1 pink radish
Slice the radish into paper-thin rounds. Use a sponge to clean your board well each time you change ingredients.
Slice the cucumber into similarly thin discs. Slice with focus and deliberation: there is nothing wishy-washy about slicing vegetables this thin.
Slice the carrot into paper-thin coin shapes.
Cut the lemon and the orange into see-through thin slices.
Arrange it all on a plate. Now eat this vegetable candy up!
