We're starting the new year off with a delicious and sometimes a little suspicious (to kiddos, that is!) veggie- BROCCOLI. Veggie Buds Club members have received many exclusive hands-on broccoli activities in the mail (learn more here), and we are excited to share some additional kid-friendly recipes and hands-on activities here on the blog!
This post is all about PURPLE! The neat thing is, some of the veggies we found had purple outside, but no purple to be found inside. We stuck to root veggies and the color purple and found some new things to try.
The hummus recipe below is a favourite in our house year-round with its savoury taste and smooth texture. And this time of year it is a nice compliment to a tray of festive coloured veggies. So whether you need a nutritious after school snack for your kids or a colourful dish for the neighbourhood potluck, we have you covered!
Turn a bowl full of winter root veggies into crispy fritters to enjoy any time of day. Have your little chef help peel and grate the veggies, either by hand, with a box grater, or using a food processor. Crack the eggs together, then mix in a couple more ingredients and you are ready to cook.
Salads may not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of kid food, but making it full of color and having them help pick the ingredients makes it a little more exciting. The fun thing about this recipe is you could use almost any fruits or veggies that fit the colors, as long as you try to make a rainbow! Have your kids be a part of it from start to finish.
