Snotty green vegetables, Frog's legs and Snails

As well as hosting our  Community Cooking Evening, Chris Fortune from Kids Can Cook ran cooking workshops with all of our Year 2-8 students last Wednesday. I saw the students having a great time, and they really enjoyed eating Chris’ “green snotty vegetables”. They learnt about New Zealand Kai and food from around the world, including Frogs Legs and Snails and they got to sample some of Chris’s crepes. It was fabulous to see so many of our students giving the crepes the ‘thumbs up’! If you’d like to have a go at recreating the dish at home here’s the recipe:

Apple and Silver Beet Crepes
1 Cup Flour
1.5 cups of milk
2 eggs
Apples, Grated
Silverbeet or Spinach, Washed

Mix milk and eggs, whisk into flour and leave to rest for 20 mins.  If it is too thick thin with a little milk. Ladle into crepe pans and cook until golden brown, leave to cool. Mix Apple and thinly sliced silver beet together,  and roll up into a tight cylinder. Slice and serve cold or heat by placing in the oven with a little cheese over the top.
