Fall Dishes in ProStart

by | Oct 22, 2021 | Blog Post, ProStart, Recipes |

As the weather gets colder and the leaves get brighter, our ProStart students have begun to prepare some hearty fall dishes in their classrooms. We picked out a few that we’re dying to try this season!

Pumpkin Pie

The students at Career and Technical Education Academy in Sioux Falls whipped up pumpkin pies completely from scratch. They roasted pumpkins and made their own pumpkin puree, and even roasted the pumpkin seeds too.  Save us a slice, please!

Pumpkin Challenge

Three for one! Chef Moandco’s students at Pacific Grove High School participated in a Pumpkin Challenge in their classes, and we are amazed with all the creative dishes they came up with! In first place was Alex’s Brazilian Pumpkin Stew, and in second place was Morgan’s Pumpkin Ice Cream. In third place was Leah’s Baked Mini Pumpkins with quinoa, mushroom leaks, thyme, and golden raisins. Amazing job, everyone!

Chicken Noodle Soup

Chef Jen’s ProStart students at Warren Career Prep Center in Sterling Heights, MI had some fun working on menu planning when they made this chicken noodle soup. If you ever needed your answer to the perfect fall soup, here it is!

Peach Cobbler Muffins

State High Culinary understood the fall baking assignment with these Peach Cobbler Muffins with Streusel Topping. The perfect snack for any time of the day, everyone needs some peach cobbler muffins in their life!

Have you been making fall-inspired recipes in your classroom? If so, tell us about it in our ProStart Virtual Lounge or add a photo on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeInProStart.
