Going on my honeymoon in less than 2 weeks! I cannot wait!!! Especially now that winter is finally here at the coast with all the rain and even some snow. In preparation for visiting Indonesia I have themed this month’s cooking class accordingly. Pictured above are: ginger, garlic, green onion, lime and hot peppers… All that is missing is the coconut, but don’t worry we have plenty of that too! For January’s cooking class we made Indonesian themed food: lime and coconut soup, spring rolls with peanut sauce and mango pineapple sorbet. I even made a bonus hot sauce that I am calling “orange death” surprisingly it was very popular in both classes. The recipe is a simple one: 1/2 of a carrot, 2 Habanero peppers, and 1 garlic clove. Blend all ingredients in food processor with enough apple cider vinegar to make a thick sauce. It only takes about 1/4 teaspoon of this stuff to make a bowl of soup pretty spicy, so use cautiously. Our cute little Habanaros are ranked high at 100,000 on the Scoville scale, while jalapenos are typically around 7-10,000. Here are the other recipes we went over in class: Indonesian Vegan and Gluten-Free RECIPES.
Since we will be on our honeymoon next month (February), March will be when the next cooking classes are offered. Hopefully I will come back with some Balinese inspired recipes.
And like always… all the Creative Healthy Cooking Classes are vegan and gluten-free!
