Bringing Back Our Favorite Comfort Foods
Many of the traditional flavor combinations and food textures we have come to love seem etched into our DNA. The meals we were fed as children and later carried into adulthood laid the foundation for our current food preferences. But is it possible to recreate these familiar recipes in a plant-based form? In this class, we will learn to build the meals we love, but in a healthy form, without compromising flavor or texture. Many of the recipes I created at PlantPure not only pass the “traditional” test, but can even surpass the original flavors! Come to this class to learn how to create healthy, delicious recipes that even your carnivore friends and family will love.
Plant-Based Snacks and Appetizers
Who doesn’t love a delicious snack or appetizer? The processed food industry has taken over the ‘snack’ world, alluring us with heavily processed, high fat, high sugar, and high sodium foods. This class will focus on snacks and appetizers that use healthy pantry staples, don’t require more than 10-15 minutes of prep, and appeal to even the pickiest little (or big) palates. Come snack with PlantPure Nation!
