This heart and soul warming class featured three amazing soups/stews that can be enjoyed as a main course for a hungry family or used as sauces or bases for other dishes.

We made Coconut Miso Cauliflower, Mediterranean Multi-Bean and West African Peanut Soup.  The group rolled up their sleeves and dove into chopping, sautéing and pureeing. Before long the kitchen was filled with the most delicious smells and tummys were rumbling as bubbling pots of soup were carefully stirred.

Laughter and stories of favourite soup recipes filled the air as the hard working group finally sat down to taste the steaming bowls of goodness. We tried the peanut soup as a sauce on faro with cilantro and avocado. Participants learned about miso, a fermented soybean paste, and its many applications .We also learned how to make a tasty Marathon Vegetable Stock you can make in your slow cooker, so simple and handy! Satisfied and tired, everyone filled up their containers and packed up their three soups to take home to their families.
