Veganism is now officially one of Britain’s fastest growing lifestyle changes. When contemplating a switch to veganism, it’s a struggle to find healthy and appetising ways to replace calcium and protein in your diet. That’s why it is so important that vegan meals are nutritious yet still exciting. The idea of only eating only vegetables can seem pretty dull however it doesn’t need to be!
As we head into the Summer months, it is nice to find ways to eat lighter however eating delicious foods that are in season and organic where possible, creating flavours, tastes & textures that are pleasing to the eye and filling to our tummy’s.
We will show you where to get your proteins for, where to source your ingredients so that you can make delicious dishes that fulfil your nutritional needs.
This class isn’t just for vegans! Anyone who is interested in tasty vegan food or reducing their meat or dairy intake can benefit from our vegan cookery classes. By removing these two food groups, you’d be reducing your intake of saturated fats and excessive salt and sugar, while naturally increasing fibre, vitamins and minerals intake.
Learn how to cook with a range of vegan proteins, fruit, nuts and soya products using fresh herbs and spices to give you lots of flavoursome dishes to repeat at home.
Some of the dishes we will be cooking:
~ Pasta pesto & sun-dried tomato pasta
~ Quinoa, black bean & mix pepper salad
~ Variety of delicious salad dressings
~ Pizza wraps
~ Rice wraps filled with delicious & satisfying fillings
~ Sushi wraps
~ Light sweet citrus sponges served with coconut yoghurt
A vegan diet doesn’t have to be boring – let us show you how.
About the class
The class will be a hands on workshop where you will get involved in the creation of the foods specific to the days class, see exactly what goes into the dishes, how much, feel the textures for yourself in order to experience first hand how the foods are made. There will be an introduction on health and nutrition, why cooking mindfully and with focus is key, working cleanly as you go along and where to source ingredients and products. You will also be given a recipe card of what we have made during the class and some note paper so you can make your own notes.
The atmosphere will be friendly and relaxed and you will have the confidence to work in a safe environment.
Our classes are strictly limited to 6 per class. As these classes are popular, we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
