Blog: Here's What's Cooking In My Kitchen
It's raining here today. My husband has a man-cold, and I'm beat. Not much appetite- at least for cooking a giant meal. But, we gotta eat something, and hopefully something nourishing that will warm the cockles and boost that immunity up for both of us. So I'm makin' sauce.
It's baby steps for all of us, and there certainly is no magic pill that's going to make us live a long and healthy life. But there shouldn't be, either. Because cooking, with kids, with family, with yourself is about nourishment not only of the body, but the soul, too. And the fact of the matter is, whether you are ten or fifty years old, if you want to change your health, it has to start with real food, in the kitchen. One meal at a time.
...I have taught a lot of culinary classes over the years, but by far, the ones that inspire me the most are the classes filled with children. Kids, it seems, have this uncanny, innate ability to understand why cooking is important...
But this week, for Taco Tuesday (you all do Taco Tuesday, right? I'd be lynched if I didn't), we decided to look east for our inspiration. Korea offers brilliant, deep umami flavors that fit perfectly into soft warm corn shells. A change up from Mexico, but at once so satisfying and so amazingly delicious, that no one asks, "Where's the guac?".
Sick of processed, sugar salt and rancid oil-laden dips and dressings? This dairy-free, plant-based dip is full of good fats and gets kids eating those veggies!
