In conjunction with Hunger Solutions Day at the September 10 Market, Chef Jenny Breen's Mill City Cooks demo was Cooking on a SNAP Budget. She provided suggestions on how to economically create meals that are both nutritious and tasty. The Curried Chick Peas with Autumn Vegetables recipe she prepared costs less that $3 per serving.
Jenny used a variety of vegetables, including fresh ginger.
She added vegetables in the order of cooking time required, starting with the leeks.
The curry was served with brown rice noodles.
Jenny explained to the audience that the term curry does not mean the orange powder in a spice jar marked curry. Rather, it's a sauce, possibly creamy, spicy or tomato based, depending on the region of origin.
The finished project was displayed on a dish by art vendor, Christy Wetzig Ceramics.
Recipes from the Mill City Cooks demos are available online.
