Food Revolution Soup Challenge
When Jamie Oliver (‘s people) contacted us to see if we might like to join in on the 2013 Food Revolution Day, we didn’t have to think very hard. The Food Revolution is such a worthy cause. Why? Because it is helping to change the way we think about food – where it comes from and how we cook it. We are pretty passionate about this message too, and want to help the next generation grow up a healthy and happy bunch and to help drastically reduce the alarming obesity rate and diet-related diseases.
You can read more here about what the Food Revolution Day is all about.
So, yes. We wanted to take part in the challenge and spread the word. Thank You, Jamie, for inviting us.
To create a lovely hearty soup using a box of veggies delivered from Aussie Farmers Direct. Thankfully it is ridiculously cool here at the moment, ahh, soupy inspired perfection.
We would love for you to create a soup too. All you have to do is make a soup on Friday as part of the Food Revolution Day challenge, then send us your (original) recipe and pic and we will choose our favourite and feature it on our blog and Facebook page the following week. Then you will be famous. Sort of. And who knows, maybe Jamie O might see it?
Or, here are some of Jamie’s ideas to get involved with:
- Get your friends and family around for a movie night and dinner. Make homemade pizza and popcorn.
- Get the kids excited about cooking by having a pancake- making session over the weekend.
- Host a potluck dinner and invite your friends to bring a secret ingredient of their choice, then get cooking.
- Show friends how to make their meals go further and save money in the process.
- Organise a dinner and cocktail party, themed around a specific country.
- Use Food Revolution Day as a starting point to having cooking sessions with your kids once a week or month.
- Start a blog with your friends and use it to swap recipes and foodie ideas.
Here’s a little colouring in sheet for the kids to do while you are cooking
