Fun Meals to Make With Your Kids

Hi Everyone,

I just finished up doing a kids cooking class this morning and it was great. We made Parmesan pork chops; green beans with garlic and grape tomatoes; and parmesan corn on the cob. I wanted to share the recipes with you since they were so tasty.

Green beans With Garlic and Tomatoes

1 pound of fresh green beans, cleaned and ends removed
1 pint of grape tomatoes

1/2 cup water
1tbsp. balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper

1. Sauté green beans in a tsp. of olive oil until seared.
2. Add a l/2 cup of water and steam for 3-4 minutes.
3. Move the beans to the side of the pan and add a pint of grape tomatoes along with two chopped garlic cloves.
4. Add 1 tbsp. of balsamic vinegar and cook for 3 minutes or until beans are tender and tomatoes start to burst.
5. Season with salt and pepper.

Parmesan Corn on the Cob

4 hot cooked ears corn on the cob
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
4 fresh lime wedges
1. Spread corn evenly with butter.
2. Sprinkle each with 1 Tbsp. of the cheese.
3. Serve each with a lime wedge to squeeze over the corn.

Parmesan Pork Chops

1/2 cup of egg substitute
1 cup panko Italian flavored bread crumbs
3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
4 (1/2inch-3/4inch thick) center-cut pork loin chops (10-12 ounces) each

6 tbsp. of olive oil
lemon wedges

2. Place bread crumbs in another pie plate.
3. Place the cheese in a third pie plate.
