Students reclaim home-cooking
Discovering the art of fast, healthy, tasty cooking using seasonal ingredients and a minimum of utensils and cooking, such were the objectives of the cooking workshop proposed by Strasbourg aime ses étudiants.es and the Vrac Association (Vers un Réseau d'Achat en Commun) on Thursday 23 March 2022.
In the superb kitchen of the Amitel Residence, at 8 rue de Soleure, thirteen students learned to cook two recipes, one savoury and one sweet, which we are sharing with you:
- For the savoury one, the leek is honoured. Often disliked, with a strong and particular taste, it knew how to put everyone in agreement with this very simple recipe of Pita cooked in the pan!
- For sweetness, it was the chocolate spread that made the students melt!
Savoury recipe: pita with leeks
- 250g flour
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- 200g leeks
- 60g olive oil
1. In a bowl, mix the flour, salt and pepper.
Add 160g of boiling water, mix with a tablespoon, wait a few moments then knead with your fingers. Gather into a ball and knead firmly until the dough becomes homogeneous, sticky, but soft.
Divide the dough into 8 equal balls, cover with a clean cloth and leave to rest for 20 minutes.
2. Remove the ends of the leek, slice it very thinly and rinse with cold water.
Place in a bowl, pour in the olive oil and mix
3. Knead the balls of dough a little to loosen them.
Lightly flour the work surface and roll out the first ball into a disc using a rolling pin.
Cover the entire surface with the leek.
Roll the dough into a tight ball, then roll it into a snail.
Roll out the snail with the rolling pin to form a thin cake.
Heat a frying pan over medium heat, place the patty in it and let it brown for 5 minutes on each side. Repeat the operation for each cake.
Sweet recipe: homemade spread
- 250g sugar
- 250g butter
- 50g dark chocolate
- 2 eggs
- 7cl milk
1. Put the milk and sugar in a saucepan and make a syrup
2. Add the chocolate and butter to the pan and mix well.
3. Add the eggs, beat well and put in a pot.
4. Leave to cool and put in the fridge.
