Food Revolution Day 2015

I have participated in Food Revolution Day the past few years by continuing to teach my kids some basic life skills primarily the ability to be able to prepare simple, healthy, tasty and affordable food.

Spring is a time for new beginnings, probably not a coincidence that Jamie Oliver has timed his campaign for Food Education for Children around the world for this season.

Each year I choose a recipe from Jamie’s suggestions (this year Pukka Yellow Curry), make sure I have all of the ingredients on hand and print out the recipe. I coach them along the way but if there is a short accompanying video to help wrap their heads around the concept then that can be helpful.

The preparation was a little slow for my newbie cooks but after the Curry finished my son could be quoted as saying “This was worth the wait!” and the leftovers on day 2 were great too 😋

The end result: Pukka Yellow Curry garnished with sour cream and Cilantro.
