In the kitchen: July and August classes

Some photos of the dishes cooked in the past 2 months’ classes. Some classes were postponed either due to bad weather or lack of students, but we pretty much covered a good number of dishes!

I’ll be on holiday break for a month. Next class will be on the 15th of September. Stay tuned for the schedule of September classes.

Perfection achieved by way of pizza

I can’t begin to describe how awesome that day was. I think Manila needs a vegan pizzeria, stat!

Quinoa cookery

The Facebook interwebz practically imploded when I posted sneak peeks of these dishes. Salad of spinach, quinoa, and mushrooms; Moroccan stuffed peppers; black bean and quinoa croquettes with avocado sauce; vegetable lasagna.

Cross-section of the lasagna.

Snacks and stuff

A fun, creative class. Who knew you can recreate the pizza flavor naturally? Gluten free crackers and nachos, 2 kinds of hummus, a roasted pepper spread, a surprise pizza nut spread, classic pechay chips, pizza kale chips, energy nut balls (this version made with dried cranberries, second was double chocolate chip), and a protein green smoothie. A belly-full of food, it was.


Uncooked versions of what we cooked in class: siomai, pot stickers, and siopao. Not pictured: baked lumpia that stole the show.

Save your soul with vegan sausages

A favorite class. Mexican chorizo and mushroom stuffed peppers, Italian sausage and vegetable pot pie, pepperoni in spaghetti with tomato cream sauce.

Pinoy meets vegan 1.0

Such a blast we had recreating healthier, plant-based versions of our favorite dishes! Lumpiang sariwa with special brown sauce, kare kareng gulay with 2 types of homemade bagoong, arroz ala Cubana with roasted saba, fresh fruit halo halo. The halo halo was super colorful not from artificially colored toppings but from naturally colorful fruit, camote, purple ube, etc.

Pinoy meets vegan 2.0

More good times veganizing Filipino comfort food. Puchero with homemade vegetarian sausage, tofu kikiam with sweet and sour sauce, chickpea kaldareta (winner!), whole wheat buko / coconut pie (winner for my family).
