It was a decadent day over here with Doris.
We were absolutely FREEZING this morning, so Doris started us off with some Homemade Lemon and Ginger Tea:
We followed our tea with a Mixed Vegetable Juice:
We had a Korean-themed meal this afternoon:
And if that weren’t enough, we finished the meal with a Ginger-Yam Pudding!
I will be making this over, and over, and over again! 😀
Moving on… next up was fish!
I learned how to make a quick, simple Salmon Burger. I’m usually pretty intimidated by cooking fish, but Doris made this so easy, I’d be happy to make these on a regular basis! They’re seriously fool-proof.
I should know.
We also made a Mexican-themed Red Snapper dish, with fresh salsa and cauliflower rice!
Followed by Tuna Meatballs:
Once we got the fish out of the way, it was back to the important stuff–> desserts!
We covered everything from super-simple desserts, like Roasted Plantains…
…to creamy, veggie-based ice creams!
And, as if we weren’t soaring on a sugar-high already, we made a variety of agar-based puddings!
By the end of the day, we wanted to try creating some NEW recipes with Doris. We had discussed trying a vegan cauliflower flatbread, using agar as an egg-substitute, but it failed miserably. At least now we know, agar does NOT work as an egg substitute in baked goods.
Luckily, one of our new creations DID work!
(I’ll post the recipe Monday afternoon!)
Though our cooking class is over, I can’t believe how much we’ve learned, even in so little time. A brilliant chef, Doris truly knows how to make delicious meals, without making them overly-complicated or daunting. I wish there were more chefs in the world like her, so that we could all be eating this well all the time!
Luckily, now we can ALL have the next best thing–> you’ll be able to try your hand at some of these detox-friendly meals in your own home! Doris has given me permission to share some of her recipes here on the blog!
Stay tuned. 😉
