Bean Basics
Wednesday, July 30th
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Cooking Classroom, $25 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Beans and lentils are some of the powerful things you can have in your pantry- and on your plate. With a long and illustrious history of feeding hungry gourmets on the cheap, beans and legumes figure into almost every culinary culture on Earth, and with good reason. They’re an excellent source of lean protein, fiber and complex carbs that are low in calories and contain no cholesterol. They’re neutral in flavor, so they can blend seamlessly into dishes, adding a creamy texture and subtle earthiness to everything from appetizer to dessert. In this class, we’ll discuss soaking beans, how to cook them by many methods including braising and pressure cooking, when to use dry vs. fresh beans, and how to pick the right bean or lentil for your dish. Areas of focus include how to make flavorful veggie burgers, how to add beans to desserts and how to make a delicious Moroccan spice blend. This class is vegetarian, with vegan and gluten free options upon request and hands-on opportunities as desired. Come hungry! On the menu:

  • Moroccan Spices Lentil Hummus
  • Cucumber Avocado Gazpacho with Edamame
  • Three Bean Summer Succotash
  • Tex-Mex Pinto Bean Burgers
  • Falafel Waffles
  • Double Chocolate Black Bean Brownies
