Autumn Inspired Soups, Stews & Chili
Let’s learn soup and stew-making fundamentals - from stocks to seasoning to garnishing techniques as we are guided through interesting (and naturally gluten-free!) soup recipes that are simple to make, nutritious, and don't require a ton of complicated ingredients.
Today’s expert culinary instructor, Chef Gary Hild, is dedicated to teaching students how to cook, eat and live better, and a firm believer that plant-based meals are nothing short of culinary medicine. He will concentrate on preparation and a wide variety of uses while showcasing healthy ingredients like sofrito, complete plant-based proteins, and luxurious mouth feel that comes from pureeing soup.
You’ll create basic homemade stocks that will be used to make soups with plant based proteins as you learn recipes like Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup, Tuscan-Style Bean and Vegetable Soup (that includes a lesson on the benefits of ‘mise en place’, and how to work ahead to ensure you have a healthy dinner on the table even on busy nights). You'll also learn to make Quinoa and Black Bean Chili, a slow-cooker meal that you’ll love having in your recipe arsenal.No more ‘creamed of junk’ soup in your kitchen – pitch ‘em!
As a bonus, Chef Gary will show you how to prepare a fresh Fennel and Arugula Salad with a homemade Citrus Vinaigrette, and more.
Chef will also cover how to use citrus juices, a variety of vinegars and fresh herbs and spices to achieve incredible flavored soups that are oh-so-good for you! You’ll also get some hands-on cooking time with this engaging professional, too.
