I will show you how with recipes that are nutrient dense made with lean proteins, whole grains and are vegetable rich. We will start the delicious morsels with Open Faced Egg and Avocado Sami and decadent Coconut Date Bars. Herb and Walnut Crusted Chicken is perfect on a bed of farro and arugula with a Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing. Crave able Maple Dijon Salmon served alongside beautiful crispy Confetti Slaw makes the perfect weeknight meal. Chewy Quinoa Tabbouleh is the perfect side or lunch dish packed with protein and fiber. For a snack let’s crunch on homemade pita chips served alongside Creamy Pumpkin Hummus. Cauliflower Steaks are so meaty they can replace expensive proteins on meatless Mondays For a delightful sweet treat we will prepare Pear Mascarpone and Honey Tart! Class Fee $53.00
