Spice Up Your Vegan Holiday!

Vegan cuisine can, on the surface, seem bland and basic. However, with the right spices and herbs, a diet, meal, or entire spread can take on robust flavor and energy and enhance plant-foods' natural health-promoting properties. In this presentation, we will explore how to use spices that are especially useful during the fall and winter seasons to support a healthy lifestyle, including immunity and digestion, and provide unforgettable flavor and richness to classic holiday meals. We will also discuss how to successfully incorporate more plant-based foods into your daily life, including during the holidays when family and friends may be hesitant to join the plant-based party. Pricing is for 10 participants. Additional participants are $35/person

Attendees will learn

-The properties of seasonal spices, according to traditional herbalism lineages
-How to make everyday spice blends and teas to support health during the fall and winter, with demonstrations of the spices/herbs and how to prepare blends
-2 sweet and 2 savory recipes that are vegan versions of classic holiday dishes (1 of each will be prepared and shown live; photos will be available for all 4)
-Tips for introducing vegan cooking into your daily life and to family and friends during traditional gatherings
