For today’s The Kids Cook Monday, the boys made vegan stromboli. This one is so much fun to make together as a family! You can make small individual rolls so that everyone has their favorite ingredients. Our boys prefer to have just Daiya cheese and sauce in their vegan stromboli. Sometimes our oldest will add in some vegan pepperoni. We don’t buy it often, but it’s a fun addition for a treat. :)  The Hubs and I like to add in all sorts of veggies, never really making the same one twice. Some veggies, like broccoli, need to be softened up a bit beforehand.

My Vegan Stromboli Helper and I made a picture tutorial for today’s recipe.

Here is your ingredients list:

At least one Stromboli Helper (isn't mine cute?!)

Roll the vegan stromboli up into a log. Pinch your edges and press the seam. Poke some holes with a fork.

Bake this in an oven that’s been pre-heated to about 325°. This will depend a lot on your toppings and how wet it is inside. I would say 350° is the highest you should go. You need to make sure it bakes inside without browning the outside too much. For us and our gas oven, 325° works perfectly for our vegan stromboli. :)   A smaller log will cook in roughly 12 minutes. Thicker ones will take longer of course, with a temperature on the lower end of our scale. Just keep an eye on them. They should look like this when they are done.

Notice how it’s a little flaky and lightly browned? We have a spice mix that we got at the Amish grocery store that is for pizzas. It’s basil, garlic, onion, oregano, thyme, rosemary and parsley. Soooo gooooood!

 

I would like to encourage you to let your kiddos do this one on their own. Be there to encourage them and only step in to help them if they start to get frustrated or just don’t know what to do next. Try to help them by relaying verbal instructions first. Don’t just jump in and take over. Cooking is such a great ego boost for kids! If you are too quick to take over they will likely view it as a failure on their part when really they just needed a little bit of guidance. :)  Your kids are capable of doing this one all by themselves. Mine do! I am always right there with them, but I let them take care of everything from mixing the dough to taking it out of the oven. My boys are a bit older (11 and almost 9), so use common sense on the oven part. ;)

I would love to see your kids’ pics of their vegan stromboli! Leave me some links in the comments section to your blog post about making vegan stromboli with your own family!!

  1. Your kids did a great job on the Stromboli. It looks great. We love the daiya cheese too. It’s a great vegan cheese. My kids usually help with making pizza and they do a great job. My youngest definitely eats better when he helps make the meal.

    • Our boys tend to eat better when they help, too. Our oldest will try anything now, but it wasn’t always that way. He had an actual phobia when it came to new foods. We’re talking panic attack and throat closing/gagging kind of thing! Unfortunately, his little brother has the same issue. It’s taking him a bit longer to grow out of it, but he’s getting there!

  2. We made this yesterday after seeing your post! My kids had such a great time cooking, even the youngest got in on the action! This is our blog post about it. Thank you for a great meal idea!! http://www.adventuresinmindfulcooking.com/fun-lunch-idea-stromboli-with-the-goofy-goobers/

  3. “Mmm yum” from my 3 yr old! I vote we make this tomorrow! It looks so good! :)
    Oh, I was wondering. Do you make your own dough? I have a recipe I veganized but would like to try another.

I'd love to know what you think of this!
