A recipe kids can really get wrapped up in!

One way to nurture, show love and educate children is to cook with them. There is a Bolivian recipe called Niños Envueltos that's perfect to get children involved in cooking. The Niños of the recipe are beef rolls filled with a variety of colorful vegetables. Kids can have a great time arranging the vegetables on slices of beef then rolling them up. I love this recipe because the beef rolls remind me of wrapping someone up in your arms for a hug.

A recipe kids can really get wrapped up in
by: BoliviaBella

Bolivians take Children's Day pretty seriously with celebrations in schools and all over the country every year on April 12th. The city of La Paz even names a child Mayor and a children's Town Council for a day. You can read more about how we celebrate Children's Day in Bolivia here.

Chef Noly's recipe is great for this date! My mom has been making "niños envueltos" (which literally means "wrapped up children") since I was a little kid, although her recipe is slightly different from Chef Noly's (that's because she's German and in Germany they call them "rolladen").

My mom's have dill pickles and pickled carrots. We used to buy jars of "escabeche" (pickled veggies, very common in Bolivia) and save all the carrots for last so my mom could make her version of niños envueltos. Check out the recipe Chef Noly has for you!
