Vegan Cooking Class: Healthful Resolutions - Low-Cal, High-Flavor
- VEGAN COOKING CLASS: HEALTHFUL RESOLUTIONS - LOW-CAL, HIGH-FLAVOR
Though healthful plant-based diets are naturally lower in calories and higher in fiber than meat- and dairy-based diets, our January class focused on those delicious dishes that are exceptionally low in fat and calories but high on flavor. Join Compassionate Cooks' founder Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, author of the award-winning cookbook, The Joy of Vegan Baking: Compassionate Cooks Traditional Treats and Sinful Sweets, in her monthly fun-filled Vegan Cooking Classes that celebrate healthful and humane eating! As always, we will also be debunking the myths about plant-based eating and and providing lots of resources and tips. We feature mostly local, in-season, organic ingredients.
Join us as we cook up:
*Kale and Nori Salad
*Asian-inspired Lettuce Wraps
*Yellow Split Pea Dal
*"No Queso" Quesadillas
*Fabulous Fruit Smoothies
