Only to have them discover that they’re eating cauliflower soup with garam masala spiced cereal! Another great idea is to make a fake egg by thinly spreading out yogurt on a plate in an egg shape, and then topping it with half of a canned (or peeled) apricot to form the ‘yolk.’

How about a warm baked potato with butter, sour cream, and chives for lunch?

That’s actually an ice cream sundae! What a sweet surprise!

Have you ever seen jelled fruit slices? Check out the tutorial on and freak out your friends with jiggly orange wedges! (Fellow vegetarians can participate by using agar agar and fruit juice instead of gelatin.)
