New Plant-Based Recipea Book for School Menus

by Ellie Grubb on 9.11.2023

In the world of school nutrition, it's always an exciting challenge to create menus that are not only delicious but also highly nutritious. We know that providing students with wholesome, balanced meals is essential for their growth and development. That's why we are thrilled to announce the launch of our new Plant-based Protein Recipea Book for school menus! With a focus on sustainability and health, this recipe book is a game-changer that will transform the way students eat and perceive food.

The Power of Pulses

Pulses, such as lentils, peas, and beans, are an incredible source of plant-based protein. They are not only rich in protein but also high in fibre, vitamins, and minerals. By incorporating pulses into our school menus, we aim to improve the nutritional quality of meals while reducing our environmental footprint. Pulses are known for their ability to fix nitrogen in the soil, making them an eco-friendly choice for sustainable agriculture.

Recipes to Satisfy Young Palates

Our new Plant-based Protein Recipea Book features a wide array of delectable dishes designed to satisfy even the pickiest eaters. We understand that appealing to young palates is no easy task, so we've crafted recipes that are not only healthy but also enticing. Some of our favorites include:

  1. Bolognese : Full of vegetables, wholesome and tasty, this is made with our Pea Mince and can be scaled up as you wish.

  2. Livened-up Lasagne: A comforting and nourishing classic made with Pea Mince and Yellow Split Pea Flour, best served with GF garlic bread and mixed salad.

  3. High Protein Fruit Crumble: Sneak some protein into dessert with this succulent fruit crumble, made with Yellow Split Pea Flour,a delicious treat that students will love.

Scaled up for success

Each recipe is scaled up to take the stress out of menu-making. With Nutritional Data given per 100g of cooked product, as well as prep and cooking times, our Plant-based Recipea Book was produced with busy School Chefs in mind. There are even serving suggestions per meal to complete the plant-based meal package. 

In partnership with JPL Catering 

Our friends at JPL Catering were the perfect partners to help us in this project. They are a pioneering school catering provider led by Michelin trained chef, catering expert and cookbook author Junior Lopes. As a result of their innovative and fresh approach to school food, JPL was selected by the National School Food Plan to create menus for their nationwide scheme to improve food in the education sector. 

Getting Students Involved

To create a sense of ownership and excitement, we encourage students to participate in the process. Holding taste tests and involving them in menu planning can help build a strong connection between students and their school meals. It's an opportunity to educate them about the benefits of pulse-based proteins and empower them to make healthier food choices.

As we launch our new Plant-based Recipea Book for school menus, we're excited about the positive impact it will have on the health of our students and the environment. We invite you to join us on this journey as we work together to fuel young minds and bodies with wholesome, sustainable, and tasty meals. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of our students and the world we share.
