Our recipe of the month for June is our mouth-watering Mediterranean Vegetable Tarts. The great thing about this recipe is it’s versatility – you can add anything you like as a topping and use up any leftover veg you have in the fridge! Kids also love pesto and Mediterranean vegetables are naturally sweet and juicy making them popular with children!
Puff pastry is a great ingredient to keep in your freezer. We used shop bought pastry in our classes for this recipe due to the time constraints, however we did have a go at making our own puff pastry at home (rough puff pastry anyway…) and it was surprisingly easy! Follow the link below to have a go!
This recipe required the children to really practice their rolling and chopping skills. They tried so hard and their skills are really improving. It also allows a little creativity as many children made a face or pattern from their vegetables too. Our linked activity for this recipe was all about sunshine as we talked about vegetables that grow in sunny countries! We included some number recognition too as the children had to find the numbers 1-10 for the rays of sunshine!
