Our Recipes

These are just some of the awesome recipes that our students have made over the course of the Chefs in the Classroom program!

Okanagan Start Smart Smoothie

  • 1 cup Yogurt
  • 1 cup Spinach
  • 1 whole Apple (peeled and cored)
  • 1/2 cup Kale
  • 1 cup Berries – your choice (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup Ice

Add all ingredients to the blender and puree until smooth. Enjoy!

Makes about 2-3 servings

Breakfast Scramble

  • 1 dozen Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Milk (optional)
  • 1/2 Red of Green Bell Pepper
  • Chives
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste

Rinse the eggs and crack them into a bowl. Whisk the eggs and add (optional) milk. Rinse and dice the pepper and chives, then add to the egg mixture. Add salt and pepper.

Put a little oil in a frying pan and wait for it to heat up. Add the egg and veggie mixture to the frying pan and stir occasionally until cooked.

Chef’s Tip:

You can get your ingredients ready the night before so that the only thing scrambling in the morning is your breakfast!

Mama Mia! Pasta Sauce

  • 1 Yellow Onion, small dice

  • 1 Bell Pepper, small dice
  • 1 Garlic Clove, small dice

Wash and chop vegetables. In a pot, heat olive oil. Cook onion until softened. Add carrot, celery, bell pepper, and garlic. Add tomato. Cook until vegetables are soft, but not too mushy.
