This cookery class will teach you what you need to stock in your cupboards to whip up quick, easy and nutritional vegan meals and how to make them.

Course Details

When switching to a plant based diet it can seem a bit overwhelming, knowing what you need to stock up on to create nutritious balanced meals, and how to make the basics without relying on shop bought substitutes. We will guide you through good quality vegan produce to buy in for making basics such as cheeses, egg free batters and mayonnaise and marinades.

We will teach you how easy it is to replace eggs with either aqua faba, flaxseeds or chickpea flour. We will work with all the delicious milk and yoghurt alternatives and make a simple vegan cheese from cashews.

The recipes will vary through the seasons, but expect to make dishes such as:

  • Vegetable Tarts
  • Patatas Bravas with home-made mayo
  • Quinoa salad with tofu chips
  • Cashew Cheese
  • Vegan Meringues
  • Chocolate Brownies
  • Carrot Muffins with creamy lemon topping

We will finish with a lunch of all the dishes we have made and you will receive a pack with all the recipes and lots of vegan tips.
