Another recipe from my Earl Grey School teaching series in Calgary. Keeping it simple and fun allowed the kids to have a blast putting this one together.
These ingredients were a great segway into teaching about carbon footprints, our impact on the earth and what it truly means to be a locavore.
Another vegan (nearly raw) recipe requiring no cooking – perfect for you to pick up and make at home with your family.
I was SO impressed by what the kids knew about the items that we discussed. One girl even knew (without using the exact terminology) that broccoli and kale belonged to the same family ~ brassicas ~ faith in some of humanity restored….look at all those hands up in the air!
With the use of technology we were able to forego our usual paper handouts (which I hope were making it home for parents to have a look at all the continued resources) and put up a lot of great information for the class to have a look through and comment on.
These kids will definitely be thinking more “Earth first” after going through how they themselves can help reduce carbon emissions by the choices they make as little humans – they seemed to come away feeling quite empowered. If you’re looking for the lesson plan I used to accompany this recipe – contact me!
– 3 cups raw, washed broccoli florets

Combine all ingredients in large bowl, stir and serve. You can also store in the
I think this one works best if you settle it in the refrigerator for a few hours to let all the flavours combine.
Top this recipe with sesame seeds or toasted pumpkin seeds as I have omitted these due to allergies.
Great as a side dish, this recipe serves 8-10 sides.
