Sautéing vegetables is a great way to prepare a quick, healthy side dish. Now that you know How to Flip Food (if you haven’t yet completed this lesson, do it before continuing here) you are ready to sauté! Sauté means to leap or jump in French. In this lesson, you will learn how to sauté while perfecting your food flipping skills.
Student Learning Goals & Objectives: 
  • Make choices in the ingredients of their recipes and reflect on those selections.
Teaching Notes: 
  • If students are completing this lesson as part of the kitchen curriculum, Cooking with Curiosity: Challenging Perfection with Reflection, this lesson is 3.2, the second lesson of Unit 3.
  • See Sharing Toolkit for Teachers to help determine if you want students to share with theirclassand which platform they will use. Also see our Sharing What You Made resource for studentson how to create voice memos, photo diaries, etc.
  • The teacher resource, Recipes and List of Equipment and Ingredients details recipes, equipment, and bulk ingredients for the recipes featured in the curriculum. We suggest having students or parents check off the equipment they have available. If in the event some equipment is not available, you can indicate to students how they can adapt the recipes.
  • Some lesson plans are formatted as a fillable PDF so that students can answer the questions and return the document as if it were a worksheet. We recommend testing this functionality with your technology as it varies by device and operating system. If it does not work for you, consider using a google form or having students answer the questions in a new document and submitting their answers to you that way.
