What you'll learn in this vegan cooking class:

Starting with organic soybeans, you’ll learn how to prepare homemade tofu of a quality, texture, and nutty taste that is in every way superior to store-bought. You’ll learn how to cook creatively with it and discover its wonderful possibilities and you'll even learn how to use tofu as an egg replacer!

  • Angelica Kitchen Style Grilled Marinated Tofu Sandwich with Roasted Vegetables and Parsley Pesto
  • Spicy Scrambled Tofu Crostini
