We have learned in Kids Kitchen that a most favorite kitchen tool is the spiralizer. Kids love creating and adding colorful spiral veggie noodles to their own kitchen creations. Our instructor says, “We used our fun spiralizer to turn the butternut squash into noodles. Several kids tried them raw… and liked them! We toasted whole wheat cinnamon bread and spread it with goat cheese, which was a new flavor for some. We added our cooked “noodles” and topped our toasts off with pomegranate seeds. It was a great way to introduce some new foods and flavors.”
Take our advice and try some fancy cinnamon toast topped with goat cheese (or cream cheese) and spiralized butternut squash. This recipe is a tasty way to bring a nutrient packed veggie into breakfast or a snack. And if you think your child would prefer a different veggie or cheese, just modify! Fancy Toast can be topped with cream cheese, carrots and raisins instead. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can purchase pre-spiralized noodles made out of butternut squash, zucchini, sweet potatoes and more in the produce section at your local grocery.
Get out the spiralizer and have some fun!
