The plants come first in these memorable vegetarian meals you can make all summer long. They stand alone as hearty, complete and creative meals for vegetarians or those just trying to reduce their meat intake. They also make great anytime snacks served hot or cold. In this class, you’ll discuss how to center meal planning around plants, how to prepare and season vegetables properly, how to incorporate legumes for maximum health benefits, how to freely swap in plant-based ingredients, and how to get the most bang out of your spice rack.
We will also share our favorite vegetarian recipes with each other so you’ll not only learn the adaptable recipes in this class, but you’ll walk away with a bundle of ideas for the next few months.
Special equipment: a blender (preferred), immersion blender or food processor is needed for this class.
