The Coli-Zucci

Natasha's Coli-Zucci is a first place winner in our 2013 Foodimal Contest!  

Natasha, age 10, from Toronto, came up with this hummingbird inspired SCARY foodimal. He flies everywhere with his super quick wings and loves to eat hair and legs.  He is super dangerous and has been known to cause death! Beware the coli-zucci!

How to make a coli-zucci:

You will need:

  • 2 zucchinis
  • 1 purple eggplant
  • 1 okra


  1. Thinly slice zucchini and eggplant.
  2. Fan slices of zucchini and eggplant into the coli-zucci's body and wings.
  3. Use the top of the eggplant for the head and beak.
  4. Use ends of okra for eyes.
