Fed up of making the same old kai? Or maybe you’ve been missing the Kai Conscious Café? Join Kathy Voyles live in her kitchen at midday on Friday 17 September to make some simple Tex-Mex for you and your bubble. It’s guaranteed to serve up kitchen chaos, hilarity and hearty comfort food.
“We’ve really missed welcoming the community to the Sustainability Centre on Fridays,” says Kathy. “Doing Kai Conscious Cafe via Zoom will certainly be a new experience for me and I’m hoping to see some familiar faces cooking along with me.
“The Tex-Mex recipe I am making is so simple and it’s one that we regularly serve at the cafe. The taste of it should transport you there in mind if not in body.”
To join in the online workshop, you will need:
1 onion, chopped
1 can of pureed tomatoes
1 can of refried beans
1 can of black or kidney beans, drained
Ground cumin, coriander and chilli
Thai chilli sauce (optional)
1 packet of tortillas or corn chips
Suggested toppings are grated cheese, sour cream (Kathy will show you how to make your own sour cream with a lemon or a lime), some jalapenos or fresh chillies and fresh coriander. To go with this simple and delicious dish, Kathy will show you how to make some yellow rice.
Preparation time is 30 minutes with the virtual lunch to be enjoyed Kai Conscious-style at 12.30pm. Washing up is to be arranged according to the viewers’ own schedules! Be ready to ask questions in the chat and share your creations at the end.
