Healthy Appetites...class #2

My children are so fortunate to have a vegetable garden in their school yard.  A garden bursting with familiar veggies such as tomatoes, beans and carrots.  But also with veggies I've never even heard of before such as, Kohlrabi. All of this brought to fruition by the school community.  Absolutely wonderful!

My plan to go out to the garden as a group was foiled by down pouring rain.  So I, geared up in my rain coat and BOGS, headed out to pick tomatoes for our recipe; Pizza Kabobs.  This was an easy, no cook recipe that kept their hands busy and their mouths chewing! :)

You may have noticed that this is the second class where we've made something that was a no-bake or no-cook recipe. You may be asking yourself "I thought this was a cooking class?"  Well let me explain.  First, yes it is a cooking class.  My intention for the class is that it's a time for the kids to create in the kitchen.  This can be done with or without a heating element. :)  Also I will add, I'm a bit limited as to what I can make as I don't have access to an oven or stove.  I do have a toaster oven and a hot plate but I'm working with what I have.  And to be honest, I think it's working out great!

Pizza Kabobs
Makes 12 Kabobs
1 pint cherry tomatoes
24 small basil leaves
24 small mozzarella balls
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Have ready 12 short wooden skewers.  Working with 1 skewer at a time, alternately thread 2 tomatoes, 2 basil leaves, and 2 mozzarella balls onto each skewer.  Or divide the ingredients among the skewers as you like.

Place the skewers on a serving dish and drizzle with the olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and serve.

  1. I love this idea! I'm so happy to hear that the class is going so well! I could go for about a dozen pizza kabobs right about now ;)
