Cooking healthy with organic Fenugreek
Fenugreek is a very healthy aromatic herb and spice with a distinct flavor. If you've ever eaten Indian dishes, chances are you've tasted Fenugreek without even knowing it! In this class, we will learn the main health benefits of organic Fenugreek and how to grow it easily in your home, all year round. You will then learn how to make 4 Indian recipes that feature Fenugreek as their main ingredient: - Fenugreek Pancakes (great for breakfast, lunch and dinner!) - Fenugreek Bread - Fenugreek Pakora (a great appetizer or light lunch dish) - A Steam-Cooked Dish All recipes are vegan and gluten-free but are often enjoyed by non-vegans too. No prior knowledge of Indian cooking is needed. The class includes an instructions handout and tastings of the recipes. Come ready to ask any questions about Indian and healthy cooking. Chef Kirti of Arya Bhavan has been doing it for 40 years and knows it all! Arya Bhavan is one of Chicago's oldest healthy Indian restaurants, offering a menu of authentic vegetarian, vegan, raw, gluten-free, and organic Indian dishes. Our motto is: Eat Well, Feel Well, Think Well, Heal Well!
I am a vegan/gluten-free/raw Indian Chef and the Chef of Arya Bhavan restaurant in Chicago. I enjoy being hospitable, being around people, and nurturing them with products coming fresh from the Home we all share...the Earth! I have been vegan since I was a child, of my own choosing. It’s something that came natural to me, so I believe it’s been God’s plan all along for me to do what I do. With a background in agriculture and years of experience growing organic produce on my own land in India and the U.S., I've made it my purpose to promote healthy eating for everyone. I am constantly at work coming up with new vegan, raw and gluten-free Indian and Indian fusion recipes and it’s a great pleasure for me to hear people say they feel better when they eat my food.
