Vegan Basics for Non-Vegans

Tuesday, January 23

Community Food & Drink Parkway District

Have you heard about all the benefits of a plant-based diet but aren't sure where to start? The good news you don't need to go full vegan to get many of the health benefits, and you don't have to overhaul your entire fridge and pantry. In this class Joy Manning and Marisa McClellan will teach you some easy, make-ahead meat free staples to prepare on Saturday or Sunday for plant-based meals whenever you want them during the week. The class will cover how to marinate and bake tofu (and what to do with it), how to roast any vegetable, quick sauces for whole grain pastas, plant-based tacos, and quick meal ideas for canned beans. Joy and Marisa are food writers and co-hosts of the Local Mouthful podcast.

Preregisteration is required via Eventbrite; tickets are $15 per person.
