Vegan/Vegetarian Hands on Cooking Class for Teens

img_4764

Hi Everyone,

Friday october 21st,  I had 7 teenagers in my kitchen for my first ‘hands on vegan/vegetarian cook workshop”. We had a really good time, and we learned a lot. This is what we did:

  • Green smoothie as a start, they all loved this one. Recipe on the blog next week!
  • A 5 minute hummus recipe, with crunchy veggies.  Munched in a minute!
  • Knife and cutting skills, like how to cut an onion..(lots of tears.. so sorry girls!), peel a citrus, chopp garlic, etc
  • Information about all the food that is available for vegan and vegetarians. (brochures and sheets included)
  • Cezanne and Clara made the Cookies for dessert (these will be on the blog next week)
  • Patty and Clara made the Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
  • Alexa made the Autumn Coloured Kale Salad with a Citrus Dressing
  • Maura and Disha made the Summer rolls with Mango and Avocado (soon on the blog!)
  • Together we ate and shared all the dishes and talked about how we made it. We also discussed the taste, their favorites and what adjustments could be made*.
  • And last but not least I taught them how to quickly make a School Lunch Salad togo

Alexa’s dedication in making the Autumn Coloured Kale Salad with a Citrus Dressing.  *Improved recipe after your comments on the slightly sturdy Kale. Don’t give up on the Kale, I really encourage you to try this one again.

Ready to eat…! 

The girls went home very satisfied, they got a ‘vegan for teens’ brochure, and excel sheets with an overview of the enormous variety of vegetables, grains, legumes etc.  available for vegan followers. I wish them all the best and hope I sent them into the world with a little bit more knowledge about healthy food and how delicious that can be.
