If you’re trying to be healthier in the new year but think veggies are just so boring, you’re in luck. 

The online marketplace Animi USA has a kitchen gadget that turns your standard red radish into a tiny Super Mario mushroom. Just use the adorable radish-shaped tool to carve out a stump and then pop a few spots out of the cap. Voila! A perfect Super Mario mushroom look-alike.

Though the $11.99 tool is sold out, Animi USA is taking backorders for shipments starting in February. 

These “mushrooms” won’t give you an extra life, but they sure make eating your veggies a lot more fun.
