Review of the event
🌟🌟🌟Our Christmas Special Vegan workshop on Saturday was a huge success. Thanks to everyone who attended and made such valuable contributions during an afternoon of culinary inspiration and nutrition education.
🎄🎄🎄 In house chef extraordinaire “Jyoti Oliver” @happymummiesu.k showed us some clever kitchen hacks on how to prepare all your festive fare in advance so you can spend more time sipping bubbles and spreading peace love and joy !? Jyoti Oliver’s mouthwatering spread included :
🌿 A tantalising festive stuffed butternut squash.
🌿Homemade chestnut sauce with leeks and celery. .
🌿 Vibrant beetroot soup with a cannellini bean pesto.
🌿Delicious courgette and carrot noodles with a tamari and mango glaze.
🌟🌟🌟My culinary showcase included:
🌿A festive green energy soup topped with parsnip crisps.
🌿A fragrant fennel seed and jackfruit salad with red cabbage and carrot slaw topped with cashew and nigella seeds.
🌿 A Middle Eastern Veg Tagine - power packed and filling albeit not particularly festive. Although our family are having a Middle Eastern themed Xmas menu this year(!)
🌿Hummus with a hempseed twist.
🌿 Cauliflower rice - a great low carb alternative to rice especially for Asian vegetarians whom rely on rice and wheat chappatis as a primary source of carbohydrates.
🎄🎄🎄Kalpana from Spa Isha and Veganish Catering delighted us with her indulgent desserts .
🌿 Chocolate orange ice cream.
🌿A festive xmas bake with all the trimmings !
🌟🌟🌟 Sonal @sonal.mantra inspired us with her story of reversing her thyroid condition through diet and lifestyle interventions. Her GP was astonished that she had defied advice to take thyroxin medication for life and in 6 months had managed to bring her thyroid within normal range. Sonal demonstrated her quick plant based whole foods lunch recipes . Delish!! .
🌟🌟🌟 The team were chuffed to receive such positive feedback and look forward to more creative, educational and fun workshops in 2019.
