Not just a cooking class! We will also discuss the basics of a plant-based diet for a healthy mind, body, spirit and planet. Bring your appetite and any questions you might have.
With the arrival of summer comes picnics and barbecues. This class includes delicious and healthy salads and sandwich options that are prepared using only whole plant-based ingredients. MaryEllen will be preparing chickpea salad sandwiches, potato salad, broccoli salad, and more. You will also learn a few simple no-oil salad dressings and a simple healthy plant-based mayonnaise. Lunch to follow the cooking demonstration includes sampling all we have prepared.
