Kitchen Thyme and Relay Foods hosted a cooking demo for a group of Virginia Bloggers, and the menu was full of vegetarian food, so I was pretty excited! (Vegetarian food and blogger friends. What’s not to love?)
I learned a lot of handy tips such as:
- If you use too much salt, you can neutralize it with lemon juice
- To save half an avocado, moisten a paper towel with tap water, and cover it with the paper towel and a rubber band. Apparently that will keep it from turning brown!
- Oil and vinegar won’t mix… but mustard can bring them together!
Chef Tammy cooked up lots of food, giving us tips and tricks a long the way, which was super helpful. And getting to eat everything was pretty awesome, too 😉
This recipe below was one of the most interesting to me, because I loved the veggie burger, yet I don’t generally like olives or mushrooms. Something about this combination of flavors was great though.
You can find the recipe here on the Relay Foods website.
I also really enjoyed these carrot pineapple muffins! They were really hearty, and I think they’d be a nice filling breakfast.
The chunks of pineapple added a really nice sweetness to the muffins, and they’d be a great breakfast on the go! You can find the recipe here.
The Relay Foods people are so nice, and Chef Tammy and Kitchen Thyme were awesome! It was so fun hanging out with some other local bloggers, and getting to try so much delicious food. I can’t wait to try some of these recipes! The last cooking class I took had a lot of recipes with meat…. so it was nice to have one that was all vegetarian food!
