This term Year 5 are working on the song entitled Magdalen Street for their Working as Historians real project so , we are using inspiration from the song to come up with recipes for the children to cook.
Last week the children made spicy rice and mango smoothie. This week we have decided to make falafel in pitta breads. It a very easy vegetarian recipe using chickpeas, onions, garlic, spices and flour. The children were quite expert at finely chopping the onion and garlic. The hard part was mashing the chickpeas into a paste!
After what seemed ages the mixture was ready to roll into balls and ready to cook.
Served with pitta bread and lettuce the children had a tasty snack which most of them enjoyed.
