Our favorite Thai appetizer Miang Kham


This awesome recipe is a favorite of mine on the streets of Bangkok- a delicious flavor explosion full of delicious ingredients. Miang Kham! Using garden greens (collards & kale) we wrapped up all these ingredients and had a ton of fun. This was surprisingly popular with our younger and pickier eaters- there’s a bit of spice in this one (ginger & onion). Ingredients:

1. Coconut

2. Lime pieces (peel included)

3. Ginger

4. Onion

5. Sweet chili sauce

6. Nuts (we use seeds because of allergies)

7. Thai chilis

Bay leaves and tree leaves


WE combined two fun activities- collecting scrumptious bay leaves to take home for cooking AND collecting leaves to cover the garden beds for the winter. Our bay leaf tree started out as a small shrub 12 years ago and is now an amazing resource for bay leaves. But first we got to collect leaves around the school and cart them back to the garden to protect our precious soil. MULCH!
