This week we will be making an edamame dip! Edamame is a soybean that is found in many East Asian dishes. Edamame is also packed with fiber! This simple snack is made with garlic cloves, which brings us to our vocabulary word of the week: mince. To mince means to cut into very small pieces. We usually mince garlic cloves to make them smaller so we can cook with them!
This week we are featuring 5 healthy lunches for kid chefs and their parents to make together. The best part: they aren’t all sandwiches! Many of them are rolls, or "sandwich cousins" as we like to call them. We are also super excited for spring to finally arrive so we went for maximum color in these lunches. (And as you might know, "eating the rainbow" is a great way to make sure your kiddos get lots of different types of nutrients.) Yum!
This recipe is made for anyone with a sweet tooth. It also uses real ingredients as a natural alternative to store-bought, processed whipped cream. Whisking this whipped cream only takes three ingredients. A sweet treat is only minutes away with this recipe.
Our Kitchen Vocabulary Word this week is Dice. To dice means to cut something into smaller pieces or cubes. Dicing is used in salsa to cut the ingredients into finer pieces that are easier to dip into. This mango salsa recipe is a refreshing option for summer and chock-full of knife skills exercises for you and your kid chef to learn together.
With Father’s Day around the corner and temperatures soaring into the 90s in NYC, we thought it would be perfect timing to make fruit ice pops, for your pops! If your dad loves food, these 4 ingredient ice pops will be an excellent way to say “thanks Dad, stay cool.” You can make them now to prepare for Father's Day or make them the morning of, but remember fruit ice pops need to freeze for several hours. And if mango isn’t your dad’s thing, you can easily swap in a different fruit. Happy Father's Day!
