Pulled Jack Fruit
What could be better after a walk in the winter woods or an afternoon shoveling mountains of snow than some old fashioned comfort food? Comfort food traditionally can be quite heavy, but an easy way to lighten up your favorite flavors is to reach for plants. In this satisfying class, Chef AmyLeo will show you how to bring classic flavor profiles to new ingredients, how to use savory powerhouses such as jackfruit, sweet potatoes and collard greens to pump up the flavor of naturally nutritious ingredients. Come with questions about converting your favorite recipes to plant based options, seasoning, plant based ingredients and more- AmyLeo is a wealth of knowledge. This class is vegan and gluten free. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Jackfruit Pulled “Pork” with Local BBQ Sauce
  • Cinnamon Maple Sweet Potato Bake
  • Cheezy Smothered Broccoli and Potatoes
