Lentil soup scores an 'O' for outstanding

Desire Torres and Amin Irizarry make dressing for Waldorf salad during week 5 of the fall 2016 My Daughter's Kitchen cooking program at LaSalle Academy.

The children always look ahead to the following week to see what that recipe is going to be. So they were really looking forward to making the lentil soup. Genesis Rios and Briana Williams did a great job tending to the soup pots and making sure all the vegetables were being sautéed, carefully adding each ingredient as needed.

The soup ended up being a hit. The salad? Not so much. Phares Lewis gave the soup an "O" for outstanding! Leila Waites though the salad was okay but a little bitter tasting. They can't wait for the Mushroom Bolognese!
