Researchers revealed that approximately 40 billion plastic cutleries are used by Americans each year! That’s daunting, keeping in mind the ill-effects plastic causes to the environment and our planet at large. So, to further take a step toward preserving the environment, let’s look at a new wing of cutlery - edible spoons!

These spoons go with everything - from mashed veggies with barbeque sauce to hummus with olives. Simple or sophisticated, these spoons can work like a charm for each of your parties.

What are edible spoons?

Made from corn, parmesan, wasabi, wheat, rice, chocolate, etc., edible spoons work as a great alternative to the plastic or wood-laden spoons. They can be served as a part of appetizers, main courses, and desserts.

The best part about these spoons is that, if not consumed, they get decomposed in about 4-5 days. They are easily available and if ordered in bulk, can save you a lot of money. Moreover, these spoons also push you to explore different wings of exquisite cuisines and culinary.

This also means that your guests get to try that “something new and different!”

Here are a few recipes for which you can use edible spoons

Spoons 1

You can try these spoons on with an array of ingredients!

Thinly sliced salmon and tuna married to chopped sun dried tomatoes, lemon juice along with its zest and fresh seasoning, go just perfect with a couple of edible spoons. Top this with caviar and blanched asparagus - and, there you have a lip-smacking dish!

You can even try pairing these spoons with grilled salmon mixed with aioli and topped with red bell pepper.
