As my summer break comes rapidly to an end, I’m reflecting on the past two months of travel, swimming,rest and relaxation, family fun, cooking adventures, and lots of kids cooking classes. The recipe that was the hit of the summer—the one that was enjoyed the most by mini foodies (and even so-called “picky eaters”)—was my Zushi recipe.
“Zushi” was born out of my love for sushi, for meals that are wrapped or rolled, and my desire to mix stuff up. So with the bounty of summer squash on hand, this super simple and flavor packed snack was created, tested, and approved by at least 50 kids and just as many adults.
So what exactly is Zushi? It’s zucchini strips rolled up with goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and fresh thyme. I’m talking crisp, creamy, tangy, sweet and savory, all in one yummy bite!
But don’t take my word for it. If you’ve got a few minutes to spare, you can make this whole recipe! Let me know what you think at KidFoodie.tumblr.com.
