Raw zucchini linguine (link to recipe) was a hit at today’s Little Locavore shows!
My wonderful volunteers really got into food preparation. We could have spent the entire half hour on that. But, then we would not have had the chance to enjoy the Zucchini Baton Relay Race or the Aunty Oxidant & Free Radicals skit.
The kids were very skillful, using “kid” scissors to:
- snip basil
- dice strips of zucchini and pattypan squash
- cut small roma tomatoes in quarters
They also used a potato masher to mash juicy cherry tomatoes for the marinara sauce.
