This super crispy recipe of chicken tenders can made with or without the tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.
When are little chefs from TRFA prepare this recipes, we know that there will be NO LEFTOVERS!Lentil Meatballs! This is one of our favorite recipes at The Real Food Academy. The first time we rolled it out on a Saturday Cooking Class, the kids where a little apprehensive due to the fact that they where mixing lentils and oats, one of them even said that it was weird to mix the "lentils from their grandmas soup and the oats from the morning breakfast" (LOL!) To their surprise(not mine), the meatballs where delicious and they in fact ate them all! I have used this recipe for meatless meatballs in subs, tacos(exchange the marinara for fresh taco salsa) and alone as part of the dishes in a cocktail party. By omitting the meat and serving this recipe with Raw Zucchini spaghetti your are serving a light and flavorful "pasta" dish that is rich in iron, Lycopene and beneficial enzymes. At The Real Food Academy, we came up with this hearty version for the "cold" days ahead. You can always make your own Pasta or exchange the homemade pasta for sheets made out of Eggplant or Zucchini in order to make this recipe Gluten Free! Serve it with our Warm Kale Antipasto Salad and Caramelized sweet plantains for a flavorful twist. Just made this recipe last night for our Adult Cooking class and it was a hit! The aroma of the Lobster pre-cooking in the oven was the omen of a good meal, the smell of the Brandy reducing into the shallots and the taste of the fortified stock had us smiling since the beginning. Like all good things, Risotto takes time and this recipe is well worth the waiting! Read the notes underneath on how to fortify your stock and how to precook your Risotto so you can prepare it at least a day ahead(good idea for parties). Also, calculate about 1/2 cup of uncooked Arborio per person so you don't end up with too much left over. When having leftover Risotto, you can always form the cold mix into patties and cook them on a skillet on low heat for 5 minutes(make sure you cook both sides of the patty). You can also place the mix in a cupcake baking pan(fill only 1/2 of each cupcake), top it with shaved Parmesan and cook at 350 F until golden brown! BTW!

This vegetable Lasagna will keep you coming for more. The different combination of veggies, tomato sauce, ricotta cheese and Bechamel sauce makes it a perfect dish! This rich vegetarian recipe can be served over pasta, zucchini noodles and even brown rice! At The Real Food Academy, we choose to serve it with Zucchini raw noodles, this way we get all the benefits of the enzymes in the raw summer squash. We have turned many children into vegetable lovers by working with this cool little gadget. Once they make their noodles or ribbons they just cant help but having lots of them! Remember, use organic vegetables for this and all your recipes. Enjoy! BTW- The Spiralizer is available at our shop.
