The great mystery of vegetarianism, for those who are new to it, is how to get protein. There are several excellent vegetarian protein sources on the market, but most home cooks do not know how to prepare them. After five years of cooking vegetarian food at home, I have learned a lot of great tricks for preparing tofu, tempeh, seitan, and other protein-packed vegetarian foods. People are always asking me how vegetarians can make sure they get enough protein, and how to prepare these foods at home and I love sharing what I have learned.
So. . . I am thrilled to announce that I will be sharing my tips and tricks in a cooking demonstration at the Ellwood Thompson’s Community Room next month! This cooking demonstration and class will introduce the basics of vegetarian protein and teach you how to prepare foods like tofu and tempeh at home. My goal is to make it a really casual and informative discussion, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and share tips, plus (bonus!) samples of some of my favorite dishes.
Mark your calendar! “Protein Power: How to Cook Vegetarian Proteins” is on Wednesday, February 13th at 6:00 PM at Ellwood Thompson’s Natural Market. The cost of the class is $7.00 you can register online here.
I hope to see you there!
