1. Chickpea Crust Rainbow Alfredo Pizza
What’s more fun than pizza? A rainbow pizza on easy-to-make gluten-free crust! The crust is a variation on socca, an Italian chickpea-based flatbread. It’s different than typical pizza crust, but it’s equally delicious in its own way (thank you, Italian cuisine, for always hitting the high notes of deliciousness), especially when topped with a rainbow of veggies. You have to try this Chickpea Crust Rainbow Alfredo Pizza by Colorful Kitchen!
2. Rainbow Unicorn Sweet Potato Sushi

Are you drooling yet? Making sushi at home may seem a bit daunting, but it’s actually super easy especially if you follow this recipe! When it comes to making sushi, you want to ensure the veg is well chopped into thin slices. Using a sharp knife, and taking extra care in slicing. It will go a long way to getting you a nice and tightly packed roll. Making rainbow sushi rolls is also a great date night activity, or something fun to do with your kids. Apart from chopping the veg (which honestly, takes some time), the sushi making process is quite straight forward.
