Soups and salads are two of the easiest ways to get a healthy, veggie-laden meal on the table with a minimum of effort. And for those making New Year’s resolutions to eat healthier, lose weight, or both, they are among the kitchen’s most useful options.
For some great ideas for soups and salads from a variety of cuisines, join us for the first class in the 2020 Thrive Kitchen series on January 8th, Soups and Salads of the World. Our focus will be on international dishes adapted for a plant-based diet, giving you plenty of delicious options to start your year.
We’ll be cooking soups such as miso and lentil and delicious salads with influences from Moroccan and Japanese cuisine.
As Director of Culinary Medicine at Kaiser Permanente San Francisco, I developed the Thrive Kitchen utilizing my dual training as a physician and chef to develop meal plans that are nutritious, delicious, and fun to cook.
This is the first class in our 2020 series. Here are the others for the next few months:
- February 12: Healthy African Heritage Cooking
