"I... took one of your classes... & I have to tell you that I was so inspired, I cook now! For my entire life, if it wasn't microwavable & pre-packaged, I didn't have the time to bother. Now I only cook plant-based and MAKE the time to cook every week. I am actually enjoying cooking for the first time in my life & have planted two gardens this spring that are based on my favorite recipes. I look forward to attending the classes and learning more! Thank you!" Christine J.

Cauliflower Masala with Whole Wheat Phulkas
vegan, high fiber, whole wheat, no dairy, no oil,
anti-inflammatory, low fat
Let's visit India for our next plant-based cooking adventure. You can spend years exploring India's diverse, sensuous dishes, each region distinguished by its culture, geography, climate, and religion.
On March 18 we'll "travel" north and have fun making a fragrant, flavorful mild veggie masala curry. Our dish will include cauliflower and asparagus with cherry tomatoes, flavored with black mustard seed, curry leaves, aromatics and scented with the floral notes of freshly ground coriander seed. Without cooking oils, our masala will be super healthy, low-fat and anti-inflammatory.
To scoop up this tasty curry, we'll also make a batch of whole wheat phulkas, oil-free, roti that puff up like a cloud before they deflate, creating a soft, scrumptious flatbread -- and all without oil or ghee.
What's not to love? You'll learn some new culinary tricks, all get to sample, and we'll talk about the many health benefits of these dishes as we break bread and enjoy one another's company.
Join us and bring your appetite!
In my lively, fun, interactive classes I demonstrate fundamental plant-based no-oil culinary techniques. You'll learn new culinary methods, meet new friends, treat your tastebuds, and come away with recipes and culinary know-how that will help you become more confident and creative in your own kitchens.
Cooking and sharing food is a social, communal activity, a bonding experience and a fundamental way we express love and gratitude. Why not celebrate with friends and family over these warming, comforting, health-supportive plant-based dishes?
So wake up your senses! You won't get bored on your plant-based journey to better health & weight loss with delicious plant-based foods. They delight the palate, enhance your waistline, nourish your friendly gut flora, and promote your body's natural propensity to recover & heal.
"Just wanted to let you know my friend and I really enjoyed the class. The apple rosettes were SO delicious! We are both planning to attend the lunch prep class you told us about. Thanks again!" Lorenn L.
