Moms know best, but chef moms know even more. In honor of Mother’s Day, they offer five pieces of cooking wisdom.
Cook with your kids. Alice Waters recommends getting kids involved making easy recipes like hummus with whole-wheat flatbreads. “Kids like hummus,” she says, “and they also like to make little flatbreads and heat them like tortillas; the whole process is irresistible, and the price is practically nonexistent.”
The tastiest healthy snacks are DIY. Instead of the usual store-bought snacks, chef Sera Pelle tosses chickpeas with olive oil, nutritional yeast, cumin and garlic, then bakes them. She serves the crispy spiced chickpea nuts to her kids as a snack. Bonus: They’re also great with a cold beer.
