Homemade onion, chilli, herb and garlic tree

It’s BBQ time, and we will all need onions, garlic chilli and herbs to flavour and scent our sizzling feasts… oh and quite possibly a brolly! Sit this unique tree in your kitchen to add colour and flavour to this month.

You will need…

  • A selection of small onions. I used red and brown.
  • Garlic
  • Chillies, I used red and green to add colour
  • Rosemary, bay and olive sprigs
  • A pot of choice
  • Kitchen foil
  • Marzipan

Step 1
Stuff your pot with foil.

Step 2
Mould your marzipan into a cone shape, creating a food safe base. Place onto your pot

Step 3
Using the toothpicks arrange your onions and garlic around the tree evenly. I used a chopping board to help plunge the toothpick into the harder onions and garlic.

Step 4
Now add the chillies

Step 5
Finish your tree with sprigs of herbs

Place in your kitchen and fire up the BBQ, Happy sizzling!
