MCHS

Potato Pizza!!!

A special treat for the MCHS students today – potato base vegan pizza, mmmmmmmh. We each mashed a handful of potatoes with a fork until very smooth, kneaded in chickpea flour and tapioca starch, then carefully rolled out the dough quite thinly. We cut circles out for our pizza bases, which we baked for 8 minutes @ 180. Pizza bases were then ready for topping, combinations of vegan garlic butter, passata, mushrooms, capsicum, red onion, artichokes and zucchini were strewn over the hot bases which we then topped with cashew “cheese” before baking in the stone oven. Everyone agreed they were very delicious. You can find the recipe on our blog here: https://live2give.nz/2015/04/12/potato-pizza/ Continue reading

Cookie Time …

Today MCHS students were very engaged in baking cookies. Each student made their own batch of cookies from scratch. We weighed the ingredients carefully, ground the almonds, and mixed everything in a bowl. We formed the dough into a ball with our hands and then rolled it with a rolling pin on baking paper. We cut rounds with cookie cutters and carefully transferred our cookies onto baking trays before baking them. Meanwhile we also made from scratch two batches of carob chocolate, in which we dipped the baked cookies. We managed to half-dip all the cookies, just in time! We each packed 5 cookies in a cellophane bag to take home. Really yummy cookies, the rest are sitting in a jar on our counter waiting to be consumed. 😊 Continue reading
