Ms. Katie and I are so thrilled to be serving students in the YMCA After School Program for the first time this fall! We have partnered with our friends at Bi-Rite Market to turn culled produce into a nutritious, delicious soup three afternoons a week.
Students had a lot of fun working with a variety of tools to finish the enormous amounts of chopping required to make a recipe that serves eight people. Another job that was popular was picking cilantro leaves for garnish.
We went over the building blocks of soup, which we will revisit each week as we play with different flavor profiles and seasonal ingredients.
