Caribbean Coconut Soup

This beautiful, creamy, no-cook soup comes together in a flash and makes a light but rich-tasting finisher to a salad-based meal. Despite the fact that it's a raw dish, it has a nice complexity of flavor ~ salty, tangy, a touch of coconutty sweetness ~ that even kids enjoy.

Classic Cleaned Up Chicken Nuggets

Chicken nuggets are one of American kids’ five basic food groups: nuggets, burgers, hot dogs, mac and cheese, and pizza. Every family restaurant chain in the country carries at least one of the “big five” and nuggets are a fast food favorite. What’s not to like? They’re fried-up-crispy, salty, finger food that comes with a sugary dipping sauce –kid heaven!
