Vegan Cooking Class: Oil-Free Dressings and Dips

Oil Free Dressing Dip

Whole food plant-based diet includes fat, but not oils, which are extracted from whole foods and so not considered whole. In this class participants will learn why cardiologists suggest avoiding oil in the diet, and we will prepare several different dressings and dips using such ingredients as  avocados, cashews and sesame tahini as whole food substitutes for oils.
