Easy Summer Cooking is a 2-part series for those who feel less motivated to cook in hot weather. What dishes, even when cooked and warm, can cool down your body? What foods to stay away from? How to manage sharp fiery or slow digestion that most of us experience in this season? Find the answers to these and many more questions in our upcoming classes.
Some of the dishes include: Ayurvedic Electrolyte Drink, Stuffed Zucchini Boats w/ Quinoa Pilaf, Green Beans w/ Fresh Coconut, Traveler’s Yogurt Rice (and how to make yogurt), Cooling Lauki Squash, Flat Rice & Vegetables Breakfast/Brunch, Strawberry Mousse, and more.
In each session we'll go from the basics to artistry, with the aim of making Ayurvedic cooking practical, relevant and fun. Each class reviews a core tool-kit of Ayurvedic cooking and also teaches how to Ayurved-ize some of our favorite dishes. A special focus will be paid to practical healthy recipes for day-to-day cooking.
