2 Minutes to Dinner“™ is a blog, originally started as a conversation among Purple Kale Kitchenworks instructors and Workshop participants.

“2 Minutes to Dinner” gives students tools to craft a personal kitchen system of economy and efficiency for delicious, improvisational meals.

The dishes shared in this blog rely on pantry essentials, the recipes for which will be archived soon.  Additionally, some items will be available for purchase, in the future, as part of our line of provisions.
