This fall, from September 15th to October 15th, American will be celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month, paying tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have contributed to, enriched and significantly influenced our nation, culture and society.
So on Wednesday, September 12th the Thrive Kitchen is teaching a class on healthy Mexican cooking, featuring a vegetarian taco bar!
We’ll be preparing a menu of creative, fresh and flavorful versions of a taco bar, with fresh salsas and other toppings. Garnishes are a good way to make vegetarian tacos vibrant, so we will also be making salsas. We will also be learning some simple techniques to make Mexican dishes fresher, lighter and healthier. These include:
- increase the proportion of vegetables to at least half
- decrease the sugar
- use less oil
- swap brown rice for white rice
Advance registration is required and we’re taking sign-ups now. Thrive Kitchen classes are $30 Kaiser members, $40 for non-members. Email SFHealthEd@kp.org or call 415-833-3450.
Thrive Kitchen classes are held once a month at the Kaiser Permanente Mission Bay Medical Offices, 1600 Owens St., from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The emphasis is on hands-on practice in healthy cooking techniques. And you will have the chance to enjoy a delicious meal made from scratch.
