My daughter was given a book with very nice winter and Christmas stories. Snowman made of rice, beef and green beans One of her favorite story was the one about a snowman. So after reading it 10 times, I decided to invite her for a snowman making cooking adventure. We made a very simple dish from rice, beef and green beans presented as a picture from her book. She loved it and was taking about the book while eating.




Snowman made with rice, beef steak, pine made with green beans  


  • 2-3 tablespoons of rice
  • 1 beef steak
  • 10-15 green beans
  • 1 mini carrot
  • 1 black olive
  • ketchup
  • tomato slice
  • salt, paper

Did you know that generally, in Europe and North America, snowmen are built with three spheres (head, torso, and lower body) and in East Asia with only two?



Cook the rice following the instructions on the package you have bought. Cook the green beans in salted water until tender. Fry the beef in a frying pan for few min on each side, adjust the time depending on how well you want it done.

While everything cooks/fries, cut two small and three bigger circles from the olive - you will use the small ones for the snowman eyes and the bigger ones for the buttons.

Place the rice in a plate shaping three circles one on top of each other. Here is the snowman. Use a bit of rice to make the snowman hands. Cut a hat shape from the beef and place it on the top of the snowman. Use a mini carrot for the nose and a slice of tomato for the mouth. Place the olives parts as eyes and buttons. Use a bit of ketchup for the scarf. Cut a piece of beef to make a stick. Cut a long, thin triangle from the beef that will make the pine trunk. Place the green beans around it to make a nice pine tree. Enjoy!Snowman made of rice, beef and green beans step2
