Greens in a Garlic Tahini Sauce with Tofu. Umeboshi vinegar adds a delicious lemony and salty flavor to the sauce of this nutritious, quick and easy non dairy, vegan dish. Here I am demonstrating how to push the greens aside in the pot when adding organic tahini to the greens and tofu. Thanks to Pat Antaya6 for coming to my hands on vegetarian cooking class for health and longevity and taking this photo.
Marinated sun-dried tomatoes and kalamata olives make this a delicious spread for bread or crackers. And, it is fabulous as appetizer dip served with rainbow radish and carrots sticks. Organic green olives adds to the YUM and Fun. Served on my Vegan Gourmet Getaway Weekend.
Always happy to hang out in an organic farm and garden. Here I am before teaching a hands on farm to table, vegetarian, dinner class at the Organic Spa Rancho La Puerta in Mexico. Grateful to teach folks how to mix and match the fresh, local, harvest into tasty easy, delicious healthy meals for health and longevity.
Serves: Makes 2 large 4 square waffles; serves 2-4
Teff is a super food. Paired with cocoa and dark chocolate, these waffles are loaded with iron, calcium, and magnesium just to mention a few benefits. I like to add a little maca and lucuma to enhance my super powers. Don’t have them on hand? No worries. Substitute teff flour! Note: These are totally fun to eat with your hands.
I started looking for some activities for my husband’s birthday that is on March 18th, and I searched for two months for some activities to do on that weekend. We’re both vegan and we always wanted to go to a vegan cooking class, so I thought that would be a nice way to celebrate. We live in Boston and there are several cooking classes close by, but none of them were in that specific weekend. I kept looking online until I came across Leslie’s cooking class and it sounded like a really good option to me. It was a little far but we enjoyed the scenic ride with some music, stories and laughter. When we got there I immediately knew I had made the perfect choice, Leslie’s class was not only an amazing cooking class, but also a whole lifestyle experience that inspired us to continue on this journey towards health and wellness. Her house is just in perfect equilibrium with the environment, she has a garden right outside the house and she wholeheartedly shared invaluable life experiences that were extremely enriching. Thank you Leslie for opening you home to us. – Natalie Lopez, Boston MA
