Last week, our students left our class with three perfect recipes to make for whoever they are spending Valentine’s Day with! We made a healthy pizza, a fresh salad and finished everything off with a strawberry cheesecake treat that will surely become your new favorite dessert.
If you have never made cauliflower pizza crust, now is the time and our students learned just how easy it is to prepare! This is a customizable dish because after making the crust, you can top it with anything that you’d like. In class, we made simple margarita pizzas topped with tomato and basil, but the possibilities are truly endless! These Cauliflower-Crust Pizza Bites will keep you feeling full without all of the extra fat and calories typically found in traditional pizza crust.
We moved on to a crisp and delicious Strawberry Kiwi Spinach Salad that had fresh fruit and a light dressing. The spinach in this salad provides the body with both iron and vitamin A. We made a honey balsamic dressing that tied the whole dish together.
The star recipe of the class was the Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. Our students were so surprised that a delicious cheesecake filling can be made by simply mixing together cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar. They piped it into a hollowed out strawberry for a perfect bite-size dessert. After trying these, it is safe to say that our students won’t go back to a traditional cheesecake filling that has lots more sugar and calories!
Thank you to everyone who came out to our Cooking With Cupid class and we hope to see you all at our next class, Movie Night Munchies on Tuesday, February 7th at 5:15 pm in the Outdoor Adventures Building of the UA Rec Center.
