This simple soup is easy to prepare and can be done with the help of your little ones. Kids will actually be more inclined in eating it if it's served on bread bowl. Broccoli is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin C, chromium and folate. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B6, vitamin E, manganese, phosphorus, vitamin B1, vitamin A, potassium and copper.
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.
As a soup lover, chowders have always been my favorites! This recipe is a relatively easy and will satisfy all of your friends and family members. Don't forget to prepare the toppings before serving!!
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. For those of you the have never seen it in action here is a short fun video ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agYDZr0GO3I
This was a hit at our Saturday cooking class. All the young chefs enjoyed chopping all the veggies that this recipe calls for. At home, have your little ones help you by using a safe knife. In our school we use Curious Chef brand. Even though this may not be the most kid friendly dish, they all finished their plate.
Spring is rushing through the door and its a perfect time to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family! This Paella recipe along with our Mango Gazpacho goes well with Fish and other light options. Make sure you choose a large shallow skillet, big enough to accommodate the rice and the vegetables!
