OCTOBER 2019: A COOLINARY CONFIDENCE CLASS!
KID-CREATED SWEET & SAVORY MIDDLE EASTERN HUMMUS + BITE-SIZED DIPPERS + CINNAMON MILK TEA
These days, hummus recipes, like salsa, are as varied & diverse as (our Sticky Fingers Cooking’s homebase state’s) Colorado weather. Though what we think of as traditional hummus is pretty straight-forward, countries and cultures have been adapting the recipe and claiming it as their own - so much so that hummus is truly a household name in the Middle East.
There are so many ways to make similar dips inspired by hummus. cauliflower, beet, and edamame make BEAUTIFUL and delicious versions, to name just a few. We thought we’d take the traditional version made with chickpeas and offer it as a blank canvas for our young chef studnets. They may or may not have ever tried hummus. It’s a little like peanut butter - a spread that goes with just about everything. Let them smell the spices and herbs that you have at home and then they can choose their own ingredients to add to their chickpea hummus base. A colorful variety of fruit and vegetable dippers (and bread!) will make tasting their creations fun and healthy.
And we couldn’t resist bringing back a much-loved drink from our Sticky Fingers Cooking favorites: Cinnamon Milk Tea - the perfect warm accompaniment to this week’s "Cool"inary Kid recipes. Enjoy, create and have fun!
