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:
And here are the directions for our vegan stromboli:
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!!
