Just recently, at Gabriola’s annual Isle of the Arts Festival, members of the Vegeteers put on two workshops: 1) Making your own Soymilk and Tofu, and 2) Green Cuisine: Make & Enjoy a Plant-Base Meal. We had great fun at our workshops, and enjoyed sharing many delicious things. The participants were eager to learn. The de-mystifying of soymilk and tofu was eye-opening for those participants. At the Green Cuisine workshop, the participants got to see the preparation of, and taste, five different recipes including a breakfast pudding, raw food flax crackers, hummus (including a way to dress up the crackers and hummus as an appetizer), a hearty stew, and nice cream for dessert. We were so happy to hear that our enthusiasm and passion for plant-based cooking was inspiring to the participants.
The day following the Green Cuisine workshop, we were very surprised to receive an inquiry about catering for 30-40 people at a Buddhist retreat! We’re not there yet, but are happy to help whenever and however we can!
