Spinach and artichoke hearts are sautéed with shallots and garlic, enriched with creamy goat cheese, then brightened with fresh lemon juice. Kids will have fun scooping the cavities out of each baby portabella mushroom and stuffing them with the veggie goat cheese filling. This recipe comes to us from Patrice Berry of Circle B Kitchen.

Tortilla Espanola (Spanish Potato “Omelet”)


Tortilla Espanola only has tortillas in its name — there are actually no tortillas used in this recipe. It is a delicious, comforting egg and potato dish, traditionally served as tapas in every Spanish home. We, however, are happy to eat it anytime of the day… brunch, lunch, dinner, anytime, even as an after school snack. And given the ingredients, it’s great during Passover too.

Teach your teenagers how to make this and they will be capable of cooking a quick, cheap, tasty and nourishing meal no matter where in the world they might find themselves…

One-Pot Sweet Potato Chili


This easy one-pot meal is packed with nutritious protein and fragrant spices, but balanced by the kid-friendly taste of sweet potatoes. This recipe comes to us from our friends at Tomato Sherpa. Bonus: If you are in the San Francisco area, you can order all the ingredients you need for this recipe for delivery from Tomato Sherpa!

Food for Thought: Sweet potatoes can be confused with yams, but they’re not related. Yams are sweeter but still work in sweet potato recipes! Sweet potatoes are native to North America and yams come from South America and Africa. In the U.S. it’s hard to find a true yam at the store. They’re usually mislabeled sweet potatoes.
