Virtual Cooking Class: Plant Based Cooking – Mushroom, Pecan & Barley Burgers

Get Cooking

For the first in our Winter 2021 series of virtual cooking classes on Plant Based Cooking, Cindy Lazarenko will be teaching her Vegan Burgers, with patties made from Mushrooms, Pecans and Barley. During her online cooking class Cindy will teach you how to make the burger patties, then form them and cook them. And she’ll serve her burgers on Portuguese Water Buns, with a homemade Remoulade, Lettuce and Tomatoes (for the vegetarians amongst you, you can add a slice of Havarti Cheese too). We’ll also be discussing alternatives for your mushroom barley mix, including ‘meat’balls and ‘meat’loaf. Whether you’re a vegan, a vegetarian, or simply someone looking for more plant-based options, this is the perfect class for you.
